We have noticed on our 2008 STD x64 domain controller that the DNS.exe process was utilizing almost 4 GB RAM. Upon restarting the service the memory utilization drops to normal. I have read posts that references the amount of cores the server has etc but actual facts on what might be causing this high utilization. Please advise?
