SQL Server Memory Management & Tuning (Greg Linwood)
Author: Jeff Wharton Date Posted: 2/11/2009 1:16:13 PM
Memory (RAM) is the most important hardware resource SQL Server uses to achieve high levels of performance. Database systems that lack sufficient memory or are not configured to use available memory properly always perform poorly compared against systems with well configured & adequately sized memory. In this session, we look at how SQL Server uses memory and what you can do to improve the performance of your SQL Server system by sizing & configuring memory properly. Techniques discussed are applicable to SQL Server 2000, 2005 & 2008 and include:

* How to identify whether your system has sufficient memory
* How to configure your server to use all available memory
* How to monitor your system, tracking memory usage over time
