    Thank you, Klaus. You have a gift of taking a complex topic and making it understandable.

  2. Hi Klaus,
    I’m very very interested with your SQL Server #Quickie. It’s very good and simply understand. Can you give example about CXPacket Wait that we need to troubleshoot. Thanks

      Thanks for your comment and your great feedback.
      It’s always fun to produce these SQL Server Quickies 🙂

      You can have for example a parallel scan on a partitioned table, where one partition is on a slower storage as another partition.
