Memory Upgrade (SQL 2000)
Posted on 2006-10-20
I've recently upgraded a SQL 2000 Server from 4GB to 8GB of RAM. PAE, 3GB and AWE were enabled - AWE was set to ~6GB. The target SQL memory was around 4.1GB and the total SQL memory in use matched that. The VERY odd thing is this did nothing at all to help performance. It almost seems that it hampered it. Any ideas out there?
