Hello there,
I'm little loss with sp_cacheconfig, what is this use for and how the cacheconfig will help to improve total performance of ASE ? what are the different between cacheconfig and sp_configure 'memory' ??

It is a long topic. But basically sp_cacheconfig shows configuration of data cache. You can create named caches as well. In that way you can allocate certain amount of data cache to certain objects or a database.

Also you can use sp_poolconfig to change size of memory pools (2K, 4K and 16K pools you have) or to create a new one (you can create a 8K pool as well even though it is not suggested when you have 16K pool).

More details for sp_cacheconfig can be found at:

To put into perspective data cache is part of total memory used during data read/write operations (that includes both actual data and transaction log read/write). Procedure cache, metadata structures are also part of total memory. sp_configure shows all of them including other memory structures.
