Env: SQL Server 2014 SP2 on Windows Server 2012 R2.

I am seeing our top wait as FILESTREAM_WORKITEM_QUEUE, with average waits near 1s and over 5000 waits during a 2-hour period of time.

I haven't been able to find out much on this wait type. Some recommend to ignore it. Any more info on this wait and how to address it (or not)?

TIA, -Peter

  • As you stated, there really isn't a lot of info about this wait type. It is for "internal use" per the MS docs. See Aaron's response to a question about this from 2017: dba.stackexchange.com/questions/192360/… – Ross Oct 17 '19 at 16:15
  • Saw that. Thanks. Leaning towards ignoring this wait. – PeterDaniels Oct 18 '19 at 17:09
