Hi

SQL Blooming memory usage on server, not showing what is taking up the memory even after configuring additional resource monitors.

Server is a VM, when checking the memory usage from the host it's not showing as that high but on the VM itself it is which is strange.

So I guess it is not anything to do with the VM host.

Now although every suggestion is highly appreciated and welcome but as I do not much about VMs and SQL only suggestions from members who has experience in that sort of thing are welcome otherwise it will serve to confuse me more.

Thanks very much once again

SQL will use as much memory as it has available. Leaving only a few hundred Meg free.
