Never use task manager to check SQL's memory. It reports incorrect values when SQL is using locked pages.

The page size is not a concern, 8GB is probably what you have it set to be. The 200 MB is not an accurate memory usage for SQL, so no, it is not a concern.

Well, not skews results so much as causes task manager to mis-report.

Performance Monitor. Easiest is total server memory under (I think) the SQL Server Memory Manager. You can also go to the process object, find sqlservr.exe and look at all the memory-related counters there.

I will try to test this but have very limited time over the next 2 weeks.
