When I run sp_who2 I can often see the same spid with a suspended status many times. e.g. spid 108 has 32 entries, half of them have nothing in the BlkBy column, the other half have 108in the BlkBy column.
Most of the time I see this when a query has been parallelized and some of the threads have completed their tasks and are waiting on the other threads to complete their tasks before being able to proceed.
Thanks James - can you elaborate on 'query has been parallellised' please. The DB is being hit by an application that may call quite a few stored procedures for the same user to build their screen. DSome of the stored procedures have many things going on inside them.
Is it likely to be affecting query response times and is there anything I can do to prevent it?
