    one of my stored procedures behaves poorly mostly because it returns lots of select statements results. The bad thing is I don't need this resultsets. Is there a way to prevent SQL Server from returning select results in a stored procedure ?

    The option set fmtonly gives me a 30% boost, but I'd also like to not send meta informations.

    Thanks in advance,

    Use SET NOCOUNT ON as the first line of your procedure - in itself it already provides a performance boost, but it also suppresses the "x records" lines. Check if your client app still responds correctly after the change, before committing.
