SBS 2003 sqlservr.exe service memory keeps building!

I'm having issues with my SBS 2003 sqlservr.exe service. There are 2 of these services running and 1 of them keeps building or holding memory. It gets to a point where I start recieving critical alerts. I go in and stop and restart the service to release the memory. I have to do this about every 3 or 4 days. Does anyone have any suggestions on why this keeps building up memory?

Hi MikeASchreiner,

If you go to the services MMC. There should be more than one SQL service (server) running there. Once you have the problem again, you can restart any one of them to identify what one is causing the problem.  This way at least one can address the correct instance of the databases.  My feeling is that it is the DB that stores the SBS monitoring data.

Regards,
M

hello itcoza,

I restarted the mssqlsbsmonitoring service and it restarted the SQL service that was hogging the most memory.
Should SQL Service Manager be Running the monitoring service? As it is running in the icon tray with a green triangle.

MikeASchreiner,

Remember that the monitoring service that you see in the "icon tray" is not the SBSMonitoring DB, it is only a service that lets you know that the SQL services are running as they should.  Please note that SBS hosts a integrated monitoring and reporting service as part of the product and can sometimes go astray with the work it does.  What we need to find out now is if you have configured your SBS monitoring or not.

My suggestion would be to run the monitoring wizard again if you have in the past and then let it re-create all the monitoring processes that it runs to provide you and the clients on the network with information regarding the server and how it is being used.

Let me know if you get stuck.

The alerts are not exeptional,  you can kill the alerts or modify the database see  http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/2005/02/04/34984.aspx for the latter.

Ok I re-ran the wizzard and I'm holding around 188,000K after 24 hours. It was getting up to 300,000K to 500,000K before so I think we got it under control now.
