MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID insufficient system memory RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am having a ton of intermittent problems with one of my servers in the past 12 hours. It is Windows Server 2012 VM and the error that I am getting is from MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID. The error is "There is insufficient system memory in resource pool 'default' to run this query.

    This server has plenty of overall free memory, so obviously the above is occurring because of a setting somewhere... any ideas are where I might go to fix it?

  • Thanks, yes that does sound like the same issue. Unfortunately, the answer didn't leave me much to go on for actually fixing my problem.

    I'll post on that thread as well to see if they can expand on their solution.

  • Ryan ,

    Can you post output of following.What is min server memory and max server memory

    How much physical RAM you have on your system

    What is output of select @@version

    (locked_page_allocations_kb/1024 )Locked_pages_used_Sqlserver_MB,
    (total_virtual_address_space_kb/1024 )Total_VAS_in_MB,
    from sys. dm_os_process_memory

    Also lease upload DBCC MEMORYSTATUS output on some shared location or T drive.Now when you got this error can you give some information about it.

    I dont understand 'MSSQL$MICROSOFT##WID insufficient system memory ' this error.Did you see this in errorlog were there any more messages

    PS: You should have reaised the thread in Database engine forum,Moderators please move it that forum.Please post all information which I have asked
