hi all

there is one process thats always in our sql activity monitor at suspended status..
The application is DatabaseMail90 - running against msdb, wait type BROKER_RECEIVE_WAITFOR

I can kill the process fine, but it appears pretty quickly again

is it from a dodgy mail profile in sql?

how can i find its source?

it does not seem to cause any performance issues, but id like to clear it up all the same

any ideas?

It's in the suspended state because it's waiting for a mail to send. When a mail is sent, it will run, send the mail then go back to waiting for a mail to send.

When you're looking at waits and suspended processes, ignore the system processes, they usually are in a waiting state, because they're waiting for work to do. This is not a problem, if the mail process was running continually, I'd be rather worried.
