SQL server 2006 Memory Performance
Posted on 2011-02-27
I have a server running windows Server 2008 64 bit with SQL Server 2008 64 bit r2 installed. There is 32 GB RAM.
I am noticing 100% memory use by SQL server. I have read plenty of articles stating that SQL server will use as much memory as is available. My question is surely MS have released a patch or process to control this usage?
If I restart the SQL service, meory usage drops and it grows again over a few hours.
Has anyone seen similar behaviour and if so, what can you recommend to manage this usage to keep it performing well?
