Wait Type of MSQL_XP
I raised a question about wait type MSQL_XP in the Summer and was told it was fixed in 5.4. We currently have a unique situation where a backup is taking a very long time because of slow disk transfer rates that might be caused by contention issues. Does a wait type of MSQL_XP cause a slowdown when taking a backup?
I am probably hoping that the MSQL_XP wait type could be causing a slowdown rather than just be a symptom of the disk problems. We are using the VERIFY in the backup job and it was this that is supposed to be fixed in 5.4.
Is 5.4 going to be released soon?
