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.

If a parent connection repeatedly runs a query that uses intra-query parallelism, several INT: EXCHANGE child connections may be spawned and then dropped each time the query runs.

This is not easy to observe while the loop is running since the INT: EXCHANGE connections all look the same... except for the fact the connection numbers grow by leaps and bounds, and there may be gaps when short-lived child connections go completely unnoticed.

Is there a cumulative count of child connections available? Such a counter might help to highlight an abuse of intra-query parallelism.

(if not, consider this a request).

There is no connection counter that tracks this information currently. Enhancement request noted.
