FIX: High CPU usage after you reduce the value of the CAP_CPU_PERCENT argument in creating a resource pool

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Resource Governor in Microsoft SQL Server 2014.
  • You create a resource pool by specifying the CAP_CPU_PERCENT argument with a value that's much less than the default value. For example, the default value is 100, and you specify a value of 20. 
  • You create a workload group that uses the given resource pool.
  • You connect to the instance of SQL Server, and the connection is classified to consume the given workload group.
  • You run queries through the connection.
In this scenario, the CPU usage is higher than expected, and you experience decreased performance when SQL Server process queries.
