SYMPTOMS

You run a common table expression (CTE)-based query that uses the CHANGETABLE function against a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 table that has change tracking enabled. Unexpectedly, the query runs very slowly even though only a few rows are returned.

CAUSE

The issue occurs because SQL Server selects an inefficient query plan. This causes many read executes to return the result.
