KILL STATS JOB job_id
Is the job_id field returned by the sys.dm_exec_background_job_queue dynamic management view for the job.
The job_id is unrelated to session_id or unit of work used in other forms of the KILL statement.
User must have VIEW SERVER STATE permission to access information from the sys.dm_exec_background_job_queue dynamic management view.
KILL STATS JOB permissions default to the members of the sysadmin and processadmin fixed database roles and are not transferable.
The following example shows how to terminate the statistics update associated with a job where the job_id =
KILL STATS JOB 53; GO
