Single-Query Wait Stats

Robert Davis shows off a new wait stats-related feature in 2016 SP1:

Paul’s process gives you info on every instance of a wait the query experienced and it’s very easy to aggregate those results to see the top waits and their total effect on a query. Quite often though, you don’t need a lot of detail. You don’t need to know every wait, just the top several. If you are already generating the actual query plan to have a in-depth look at the plan, wouldn’t it be nice if the query wait stats were already in there for you?

Now they are. In SQL Server 2016 (I’m told it came in SP1, but I don’t have a non-SP1 instance to verify that), the actual execution plan includes the top waits for the query execution in the plan. You can see them by clicking on the left-most (first) operator in the plan and viewing the Properties (shortcut F4). It will list the top waits right there in the properties dialog for you.

Getting single-query wait stats in the execution plan makes life so much simpler.
