Hi there,
We've 256GBs memory on the server. Out of that we provided 205GBs for SQL instance and rest for the OS. Now, we're seeing that the physical memory is 87% used. But CPU usage is way low. (note: we've 10 quad cores CPUs)  How I diagnose which processes using what and how I release the Memory?  Thank you in advance for your help.
