Using dbghelp.dll version 4.0.5.
Applies to: SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition.
On one of the SQL Server 2012 instances on my organization that is used by
SharePoint 2013, I found many entries on the SQL Server error log with the
Date 2/12/2015 2:33:53 PM
Log SQL Server (Current - 11/20/2014 11:24:00 AM)
Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5'.
This entry on SQL Server error log is related with the Database Performance
Metric Provider feature of SharePoint 2013. The feature is not available on SQL
Server 2012 and that is the reason the error message appears on the SQL Server
error log. Initially disabling Database Performance Metric Provider stop the
entries to appear on the SQL Server Error Log.
The fix for this issue was released on Cumulative Update 12 for SQL Server 2008
R2 SP2 and Cumulative Update 6 for SQL Server 2012 SP1. You can download them on
the following URLs:
Cumulative Update 12
for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2.
package 6 for SQL Server 2012 SP1.
