sp_BlitzFirst® Result:
High Compilations per Second

According to sp_BlitzFirst®‘s diagnostics, your SQL Server is having to compile more than 10% of the incoming T-SQL requests.

When SQL Server sees a query for the first time, it has to build a new execution plan for it. This can cause high CPU use for building that plan – building these plans is computationally intensive. Then, SQL Server caches the plan to avoid having to rebuild the wheel again.

Your server, on the other hand, is either unable to cache plans long enough in memory, OR it’s seeing tons of all-new queries every time. Generally, we expect to see >90% of the plans cached on an OLTP server.
