Occurs during the initialization of a Service Broker connection endpoint. This should occur very briefly. Information from Microsoft®


This wait type is charged only during instance start up, when Service Broker is waiting for all endpoint types to be registered, so that it can start Broker and/or Database Mirroring endpoints.

Waiting_tasks_count should be just 1 and wait_time_ms should be really small for this wait type. Source: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sql_service_broker/archive/2008/12/01/service-broker-wait-types.aspx
