In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, you experience slower performance than typical when the MSCRM Stored Procedure Priming job is running. You notice one or more of the following symptoms:
This problem occurs because the MSCRM Stored Procedure Priming job exists to keep the Microsoft Dynamics CRM cascading stored procedures in the Microsoft SQL Server procedure cache. By default, the MSCRM Stored Procedure Priming job is scheduled to run every 10 minutes. The frequency of running the job can cause the CPU usage to spike on the SQL Server that contains the Microsoft Dynamics CRM databases.
