Search PI tag references across Multiple AF databases?

We get requests to retire PI tags from time to time.  This is very straight forward on the archive server, however we have more than a few AF databases. It is hard to know what might break once a tag is no long collecting data. I was asked if there exists a way to search across all AF databases on an AF server to see where the PI Tag is being referenced. 

 

Is there a client tool that does this already? Has anybody built something to do this, so I can be lazy? I can think of tedious ways to do this by importing everything with PI Builder.  I can also imagine a SQL stored procedure or query on the sql backend.
