I know, you probably have questions about CXPACKET.
Maybe you look at a wait stats report and nod sagely at the caps lock extravaganza of variably descriptive names.
The unformatted numbers that you tally on your fingers, and then have to look up what 12 digits is.
When you search around, you can figure out what most of your waits are, and why they happen. You might even be able to figure out how to fix them.
(I know, you’re gonna read advice on a blog from 2003 telling you to set “MaxDOP” to 1, but forchrissakes don’t do it.)
What I’m looking for are waits that pop up, but you haven’t been able to find answers to. The real nut crackers.
If you’ve got those, leave a comment and let me know.
