Deltek Vision is basically an accounting / Project management program running ontop of SQL Server 2005. What is the prefered settings for "Processor Scheduling" & "Memory Usage" for this type of system.

Right now I have this set to the same as my Exchange server, that is "Backgrouns Services" & "Programs" respectivly (which I found from an answer to another persons question in this forum).

Also: with 4 Gig of RAM, I did not think I needed the full 1.5 times for swap file, so I left the swap file a 3 Gb.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

There isn't any harm from a SQL point of view of having a large swap file. Ideally SQL wont use it much.

But I've seen that MS recommends a minimum page file of the same size as memory. Why don't you set it with a range between 4GB and 6GB and let Windows manage it in that range.

Yes, Definitely go for Background Services, but I would have thought that System Cache would have been the better optioni for the Memory setting.

Cheers
