Based on the listed assumptions, what are the potential performance differences between the following 3 SQL statements?  All statements are run on Server A.

>> select * from CustData..Cust c join CustData..Dept d on (c.DeptID = d.DeptID)

LinkServerA: Linked server definition, defined on Server A, that points back to itself

>> select * from CustData..Cust c join LinkServerA.CustData..Dept d on (c.DeptID = d.DeptID)

LinkServerB: Linked server definition, defined on Server A, that points to remote Server B

>> select * from CustData..Cust c join LinkServerB.CustData..Dept d on (c.DeptID = d.DeptID)

hi
one thing i ran into is that Because linked server is using OS memory rather than the buffer pool and if there is not enough memory, your query performance will degrade.
