Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 fix release.
Consider the following scenario:
You use a table-valued parameter (TVP) that contains many rows on a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2.
You use SQL Profiler or SQL Server Extended Events on the server.
You run a query together that uses the TVP.
In this scenario, a non-yielding scheduler error occurs, and queries that are already running on the same scheduler run slowly. Additionally, a mini-dump file is generated in the SQL Server log folder.
This issue occurs because of an error in the SQL Server database engine. The text columns in the TVP are implemented as insert strings or buffers, and an increase in the number of rows increases the number of buffers. However, the process that releases buffers is time-consuming. Therefore, a non-yielding scheduler error is generated when release and shrink operations occur.
To resolve this issue in SQL Server 2008 R2, use one of the following methods:
Install Cumulative Update package 7 for SQL Server 2008 R2.
Install the following hotfix package.
