Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You enable the Trace Flag (TF) 7412 in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or 2017.

  • You have a session N where you run a command that updates an underlying index and also generates a missing index warning.

  • From session M, you run the Dynamic Management Functions (DMF) sys.dm_exec_query_statistics_xml(N) pointing to session N.

In this situation, you may notice that the command is blocked with wait type QRY_PROFILE_LIST_MUTEX, the DMF is unable to complete the execution and both the sessions seem to be hung.
