I'm running SQL Server Web on a VM with 20 cores. (I know, Web edition can only make use of 16 cores but I'll get that resolved soon when I upgrade to Standard).
But what's funny to me is that for some reason, one of the cores is always at 100%. I've never seen this before as usually the load is spread out between all the cores.
Anyone experience this?
The long running queries/transactions are all types as this is handling an ecommerce site. The transactions themselves aren't the issue as I can paste them into new query window and they run fast so it sounds like it's just the sheer amount of them. Also, when traffic does down during off peak hours, I no longer have the issue.
There are no other applications running on the server that is using more than 1-2% of the CPU.
