The forum will be down for maintenance over the weekend of August 18-20, 2017. The forum will be shut down on the evening (EDT) of Friday, August 18. Downtime is unknown but may be up to two days. The forum will be restarted as soon as maintenance is complete.

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;
