I installed the server component of an app on a newly re-formatted Windows Server 2011 SBS machine yesterday. I found the server pretty slow so I checked the machine a bit. The box has 8 GB of RAM. The physical memory percentage being used was in the 85% area.
The server is running Exchange Server, which I believe uses a lot of resources... The app I installed uses SQL Server Express 2008 R2.
I am an applications guy, not a server guru. Is that normal or should additional memory be installed in the server?
Thanks very much,
