Physical Memory 198,250K Available RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a sql 2005 server with 8GB of RAM. Task Manager shows that it only has 198,250k (about 200 MB) of  Physical Memory available. I wonder if that number should be higher.


    What can I check (Perfmon counters? Which ones?) to indicate it that's too little RAM, the right amount, or too much.

  • Task Manager maybe misleading if AWE is enabled. To get a true reading of the memory use Perfmon > \\servername , SQLServer:Memory Manager, Total Server Memory(KB)


    In Query Analyzer run sp_configure to see settings of AWE
