Hi,

I am noticing on VPS that SQL Server is taking more memory and not releasing memory even when there is no much activity. Is there any method so I can release memory when it is not required,. Either by setting with SQL Server or by programming.

I used memory limit of sql server, but it created problem. I am not willing to go with memory limit.

Thank you

this is normal. it takes really some time (hours) with 0 activity until sql server would release memory.

>Is there any method so I can release memory when it is not required,
why that, actually?

>I used memory limit of sql server, but it created problem.
what limit did you set (vs how much memory do you have), and which problem did it create?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I have to object.

sql server will grow to "max memory setting", normally. this is fact.
sql server will reduce below it's used memory ONLY if there is no (very low) activity, and other applications are requiring memory

if you set max memory too low, sql server will become slow as a turtle
if you set max memory too high, sql server + os will become slow as turtle

if you run too many apps on the same "server" (aka sql server + other apps), you have to tune the memory usage.

nothing "complex"

Following an Objection by angelIII, and after Moderator review, there seems to be a better  disposition, as recommended by the contributing Expert(s).
