SQL eating up memory?

Microsoft SQL Server
16 Comments1 Solution117 ViewsLast Modified:

I have a rather simple question I think. I have a SQL Server with 32GB. Even though I set minimum memory value of 5gb and max of 24gb, my operating system always runs on 1gb or less and I'm constantly at 96% utilization in total. I'm not sure how to prevent this from happening. Am I suppose to increase the Minimum memory in SQL?

Thanks again
