Collect all information for all databases from a single script using sys.databases

Sys.databases can be a goldmine for collecting all information for databases. Below script will collect all vital information for all databases hosted on a SQL Server in a very user friendly format.

SELECT database_id,
CONVERT(VARCHAR(25), DB.name) AS dbName,
CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), DATABASEPROPERTYEX(name, 'status')) AS [Status],
state_desc,
(SELECT COUNT(1) FROM sys.master_files WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = DB.name AND type_desc = 'rows') AS DataFiles,
(SELECT SUM((size*8)/1024) FROM sys.master_files WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = DB.name AND type_desc = 'rows') AS [Data MB],
(SELECT COUNT(1) FROM sys.master_files WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = DB.name AND type_desc = 'log') AS LogFiles,
(SELECT SUM((size*8)/1024) FROM sys.master_files WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = DB.name AND type_desc = 'log') AS [Log MB],
user_access_desc AS [User access],
recovery_model_desc AS [Recovery model],

CASE WHEN is_cleanly_shutdown = 1 THEN 'cleanly shutdown' ELSE '' END AS [cleanly shutdown]
FROM sys.databases DB

ORDER BY dbName, [Last backup] DESC, NAME

This is a very handy script to review and update you inventory.
