The hover text from today’s xkcd: “Correlation doesn’t imply causation, but it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively and gesture furtively while mouthing ‘look over there’.” I love Randall Munroe.
O, my beloved nipple!
I return from the heathen wilderness of touchpads
To the glory of your navigational precision.
I’m so full of good intentions,
I hardly ever do the stuff I mention.
Seems that I should realize,
But I thought of the greatest thing last night!
– to the tune of “Good Intentions” by Toad the Wet Sprocket
Microsoft’s getting a little punchy!
An access violation occurs in the “sqlservr!BufferPartition::Steal” function, and SQL Server stops responding.
Committing an access violation is the definition of stealing, no? So this seems like perfectly normal behavior for a steal function!
I like that SQL Server appears to get mad and ignore you when you the buffer manager starts stealing. This confirms my suspicion that SQL Server is actually an obnoxious child.
