The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Why does sa_conn_properties() return a value of TempFilePages for the current connection that is wildly different from CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'TempFilePages' ) which should return the same value?

It may not be fair for the following query to call it "Incorrect TempFilePages" because (I think) it is a snapshot of the TempFilePages value when it has been momentarily inflated by the process of calculating the sa_conn_properties() result set itself.

HOWEVER, if that is the explanation, perhaps sa_conn_properties() could be modified to avoid using that inflated value.

       CONNECTION_PROPERTY ( 'TempFilePages' ) AS "Correct TempFilePages",
       Value AS "Incorrect TempFilePages"
  FROM sa_conn_properties()
 WHERE PropName = 'TempFilePages'
   AND Number = @@SPID;
