SQL Server Machine Learning Services and Extended Events

Back in the day when I started with the SQL Server R Services - Internals posts, I thought I would use SQL Server Extended Events (XEvents) to figure things out. I knew SQL Server and the extensibility architecture supported XEvents because I had come across this documentation, where it (amongst other things) said:

"SQL Server provides a set of extended events to use in troubleshooting operations related to the SQL Server Trusted Launchpad, as well as Python or R jobs sent to SQL Server."

From the above, it is pretty clear that XEvents is the way to go when drilling down into how things "hang together". However, how hard I tried, I could not make "head or tails" of how to get things to work (I should probably have tried harder), so in the end, I went the WinDbg and WireShark route.

Fast forward a year (and a bit) and someone asked a question on an internal forum about XEvents and SQL Server Machine Learning Services, and I decided to look into it and to try to understand it a bit better. So this post is the result of me playing around with researching XEvents and SQL Server Machine Learning Services.
