I am running into some sqlserver performance issues.
I have a table in (sqlserver 2008 R2) one of the database, with
less than 10 fields. One of the column data type is image and this table has about 300 records. we are storing word documents in this field.

I have a front end application connecting to this database and when I retrieve the results from the end application connecting to this table, it is taking almost 10 seconds. But once I update the image field to a blank for these 300 records , the form is coming up in 1 second in the front end.

However the same application is behaving fine in SQL server 2008 environment connecting to the same database.
The difference is have seen is one is SQL server 2008 and other is SQL server 2008 R2.

Also, when I compared the server properties for 2008 and 2008 R2,

i have observed that enabled processors is not checked for 2008 R2
where as enabled processors are checked for 2008.

I am not sure if this is causing any performance issue.

please help

For the 2008 R2 database, is the query being blocked during those 10 seconds. Compare the execution plan for both queries. Is there a difference?
