The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It seems to be doing a bit of I/O but mostly waiting for resources while a SELECT * FROM sa_table_fragmentation ( owner_name = 'DBA' ) has rendered the database mostly unresponsive (on and off) for over an hour.

Update: After The Connection From Hell went away the server returned to normal responsiveness... but the UpdateStats connection is continuing to run, still doing (a bit of) I/O... but what?

Are we certain there just isn't a customer defined event by that name? It doesn't sound like a pre-12 type of internal connection and version 11.0.x generally did not display the connection name/description of internal connections for system or parallel worker connections.

...yes, indeed, four CREATE STATISTICS on the biggest tables, every three hours. Silly me...
