FIX: Incorrect choice of a nested loops join strategy causes poor query performance in SQL Server 2014

Symptoms

When you use Microsoft SQL Server 2014 to run a query that uses a nested loops join, you experience poor query performance when an incorrect choice of a query execution plan occurs.

Cause

This behavior occurs because the query optimizer chooses an incorrect nested loops join strategy when incorrect cardinality estimates or incorrect operator costing is used.

Resolution

This problem was first fixed in the following cumulative update for SQL Server:

Cumulative Update 1 for SQL Server 2014 SP1

Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2014
