Short Description

Bitmap filtering is used in parallel query plans to reduce data being passed up the plan

Detailed Description

Bitmap filters are used by SQL Server to streamline data for further stages and can be seen in parallel query plans. By applying bitmap masking to incoming data, rows that can never match are rejected lower down the plan. Having less data to process higher up the plan speeds up execution.
