Function Calls Missing From dm_exec_query_stats

Kendra Little blogs about a data collection oddity with functions in SQL Server:

Some of my functions in the demo code were showing up just fine. I was really puzzled by that. I thought …

Maybe this is a bug with ‘CREATE OR ALTER’? A sign of some weird memory pressure? Something introduced in SQL Server 2017? A buggy side effect of implicit conversions in some of the functions? A problem with the queries I was using? A weird setting on the database? (Also: about 100 other things that didn’t turn out to be the case.)

I finally wrote up some simple demo code, tested it against a SQL Server 2008 R2 instance (omitting the Query Store components), compared it with SQL Server 2017, and found it to be consistent.
