More Information

BizTalk Server relies heavily on SQL Server for accurate and rapid data processing. The auto create statistics option, the auto update statistic option, and the Max Degree of Parallelism setting can significantly change the execution plan of a query from one instance of SQL Server to another instance of SQL Server. Therefore, to provide consistent support for all customers, BizTalk Server pre-hints all queries with the best possible search criteria for each query scenario. This behavior enables consistent BizTalk Server to SQL Server interaction. The interaction can be benchmarked and supported by Microsoft regardless of the customer environment.

To enable BizTalk Server to work as intended, the following options are turned off in the BizTalkMsgBoxDb database:
  • auto create statistics
  • auto update statistics
Additionally, the Max Degree of Parallelism setting is set to 1 in the SQL Server instance that hosts the BizTalkMsgBoxDB database.
