T-SQL: Check progress of backup/restore

Backups/restores can take a lot of time, but when it’s running, you want so see the progress.
By executing the handy T-SQL code below, you can see the progress of the backups/restores on your system.

SELECT session_id as SPID, command, a.text AS Query, start_time, percent_complete, dateadd(second,estimated_completion_time/1000, getdate()) as estimated_completion_time 
FROM sys.dm_exec_requests r CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(r.sql_handle) a 
WHERE r.command in ('BACKUP DATABASE','RESTORE DATABASE')


select 
r.session_id, 
r.blocking_session_id, 
db_name(database_id) as [DatabaseName],
r.command, 
[SQL_QUERY_TEXT] = Substring(Query.TEXT, (r.statement_start_offset / 2) + 1, (
            (
                CASE r.statement_end_offset
                    WHEN - 1
                        THEN Datalength(Query.TEXT)
                    ELSE r.statement_end_offset
                    END - r.statement_start_offset
                ) / 2
            ) + 1),
                [SP_Name] =Coalesce(Quotename(Db_name(Query.dbid)) + N'.' + Quotename(Object_schema_name(Query.objectid, Query.dbid)) + N'.' + 
     Quotename(Object_name(Query.objectid, Query.dbid)), ''),
r.percent_complete,
start_time,
CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), DATEADD(ms, [estimated_completion_time],
GETDATE()), 20) AS [ETA_COMPLETION_TIME],
