            when 1 THEN 'Default/System Trace'
            when 0 THEN 'User Trace'
      Trace_Status =
      case trace.status
            when 1 THEN 'Running'
            when 0 THEN 'Stopped'
       ssion.session_id as SessionID,
       [loginName] = coalesce(ssion.login_name,ssion.login_name,'Reader SPID Not mentioned'),
       [Trace_File_Path] = coalesce(trace.[Path],trace.[Path],'OLEDB Client Trace')
      from sys.traces trace
            left join sys.dm_exec_sessions ssion on trace.reader_spid = ssion.session_id
