CXCONSUMER Waits And More From PASS Summit

Brent Ozar relays a couple exciting announcements from PASS Summit:

Microsoft’s Joe Sack & Pedro Lopes held a forward-looking session for performance tuners at the PASS Summit and dropped some awesome bombshells.

Pedro’s Big Deal: there’s a new CXPACKET wait in town: CXCONSUMER. In the past, when queries went parallel, we couldn’t differentiate harmless waits incurred by the consumer thread (coordinator, or teacher from my CXPACKET video) from painful waits incurred by the producers. Starting with SQL Server 2016 SP2 and 2017 CU3, we’ll have a new CXCONSUMER wait type to track the harmless ones. That means CXPACKET will really finally mean something.

Read on to see what Joe has for us.
