In this article I will demonstrate how to configure the threshold option using SQL Server Management Studio. According to Microsoft, Cursor threshold option is used to specify the number of rows in the cursor set at which cursor keysets asynchronously. When keyset is generated by cursor, query optimizer specifies the number of rows returned for that result set.

To configure cursor threshold option:

Step 1

Open SSMS, connect to database engine and open Object Explorer.

Step 2

In Object Explorer, right click on a server and select Properties.
