sp_

 

*NEVER* use sp_ for your user object names
If your stored procedure name begins with the "sp_" prefix and is not in the master database, you see SP:CacheMiss before the cache hit for each execution even if you owner-qualify the stored procedure. This is because the sp_ prefix tells SQL Server that the stored procedure is a system stored procedure, and system stored procedures have different name resolution rules (the "preferred" location is in the master database). The names of user-created stored procedures should not begin with "sp_."
