Hi, does anyone know of any performance issues with SQL Server Service Broker running on a VMware Virtual Machine? I'm trying to create a dev server in line with a live server we already have that's running service broker in SQL Server 2005. The config for the dev server is similar in terms of hard-drives, memory, etc. to our Live server. I've then restored a backup of the Live database onto the Dev server. However, as soon as I enable Service Broker, the performance of the Dev server grinds to a halt without even sending one record to the queue!! The CPU processing skyrockets and the disk I/O reads slow to a crawl. Once I turn Service Broker off, the server works well. Anyone has any ideas why this might be?
