Query execution takes very long time when there is no local index on the partition column and it was going for full table scan.

Test Case

Review trace file generated by event 10128.

Compare to running the same but with no_parallel instead of parallel.

If a select query with,
  1. range partitioned table
  2. uses MIN/MAX operator on partitioned key
  3. iterator uses MIn/MAX optimization
  4. parallel query plan is run in serial
  5. all of the partitions are accessed
then you might be encountering this issue.
