When you perform RetrieveMultiple queries on large datasets in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, you experience slow performance.
This problem occurs because large datasets cache the Microsoft SQL query plans for the RetrieveMultiple queries. The RetrieveMultiple optimization for the basic depth is required for the "local depth" read privilege and for the "deep depth" read privilege.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
