ABORT_AFTER_WAIT on Index Rebuilds and the Error Log

Tom Zika performs an experiment:

In SQL Server, using the KILL command to terminate a session results in an entry being logged in the error log.
This raises the question: Does the ALTER INDEX REBUILD command with the WAIT_AT_LOW_PRIORITY option also log its actions in the error log?

Tom does violate Betteridge’s Law of Headlines, but you should read the post regardless.

    I did that on purpose. Thank you for noticing!

      You subverted everybody’s expectations along the way.
