Hello

I noticed that the counter TARGET SERVER Memory was upper (12go ) to the counter TOTAL SERVER MEMORY (8go)
While the min and the max to server memory are fixed in 12go.
There is 16go of RAM on the server
How to explain it?
How can I estimate the mempry needed by SQL Server?

Thanks

I think you're completly fine.
If, over time, the SQLServer:Memory Manager: Total Server Memory (KB) counter is less than the SQLServer:Memory Manager: Target Server Memory (KB) counter, then this means that SQL Server has enough memory to run efficiently
