I keep seeing this wait stat "Broker_EventHandler" in the SQL Server wait stats with high duration times. What is Broker_Eventhandler? Why does it have high wait times?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That is the time that the SQL Service Broker waits while waiting for the service broker to run its activation procedures. This typically wouldn’t be anything to worry about.
