  • SQL Server 2005 Express SP3 Memory Usage

    Upon Startup of my system the sqlwriter process immediately grabs 700mb of RAM and holds it. As I use the SQL Server to do different thing the memory usage grows and causes the memory on my system to decline. The SQL Server never releases the memory and it causes my system to respond slowly. I fear...

  • SQL Server 2005 memory issue

    SQL server 2005 running on Windows XP. The memory grows steadily then SQL (system) hangs when memory gets to 1.7 GB and then the server must be re-started. What could cause this?

  • SQL Server memory usage

    I have a situation where a total of 13 GB RAM is being used by SQL server. Is there any way I can break down the 13 GB usage by application?  Is there any data or technique which could be used?

  • Memory overhead recommended for benchmarking SQL server 2005 on vSphere

    For a 'direct' physical to VM comparison of SQL server 2005, would anyone recommend giving the VM extra (say, 1.5GB) RAM to compensate for any overhead the OS needs? So a direct comparison would then be 1vCPU, 2.5GB RAM VM & SQL set to use 1GB RAM) vs. SQL on physical host set to use 1CPU and 1GB...

  • Investigating SQL Server 2005 memory issues

    We have a data warehouse server running SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition. Lately, after a restructure, we're seeing some performance hits. If this is due to what was added during that rebuild, we have no problem with it. However, we are not sure. When a query is run, the disk queue fluctuates...

  • Memory allocations for SQL and other server processes

    If I am correct, available bytes is the amount of memory available to the SQL Server at that point in time, working set is the amount SQL is actually using and total server memory is the total amount of all memory processes on that server. I have on a 4GB box with 3GB fixed and set aside for SQL:...
