We have a virtual Windows Server 2008 R2 box running with 4 CPUs and 8GB of RAM on VMware connected to a NetApp SAN with 15k Disks. Within an hour after boot the RAM is near 7.8GB of usage and the system runs slow. CPU seems to range from 10-30% We have about 15 SQL Database and 200GB of data.
What type of performance recommendation(s) can you recommend? The only thing I saw was to verify clean up jobs are run in the evenings and changed recovery model from FULL to SIMPLE.
