FIX: Poor performance when you run a query against a table in an RCSI-enabled database in SQL Server 2012 or 2014

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014, you run a query against a table.
  • The query uses a parallel plan.
  • Read committed snapshot isolation (RCSI) is enabled at the database level.
In this scenario, you experience poor performance in SQL Server. Additionally, many latch waits occur in the NESTING_TRANSACTION_FULL or NESTING_TRANSACTION_READONLY latch class.

Notes
  • To view the information about the latch waits, use the sys.dm_os_latch_stats dynamic management view.
  • To view the information about the wait queue of tasks that are waiting on a resource, use the sys.dm_os_waiting_tasks dynamic management view.

Resolution
This issue is resolved in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
