SQL Server 2008 R2 - Wait time

Posted on 2011-03-08

Hi !

My SQL Server is showing a 3000 ms wait time under the "Other" wait category,  88 ms under the "Network I/O" category and finally 1354 ms under the Latch category. All other ressources monitors are looking okay.

Should I be alarmed by this ? A lot of my users complaint that their transactions are taking longer than usual.

What is the "other" ressource wait is for ? Can I expend this to obtain more details and how do I troubleshoot this ?

Thank you for helping.

first where you got this wait time?

check the sys.dm_os_waiting_task to troubleshoot the waits.

also check the lock and long running queries.
