David Fowler takes us through the SOS_SCHEDULER_YIELD wait type:

I decided to write this off the back of a conversation I was having the other day around the SOS_SCHEDULER_YIELD wait type.

The conversation went something along the lines of “but David, I’m seeing SOS_SCHEDULER_YIELD, we must have CPU issues”.

Yes this particular customer had been CPU bound recently but was that really their problem now, what is SOS_SCHEDULER_YIELD really mean?

It’s a good write-up of when it is and is not a problem.
