Post on Troubleshooting Memory Issues

Here's a post from the Windows Server Performance Team:

   An Overview of Troubleshooting Memory Issues

The post discusses the following issues:

  • Physical RAM shortage
  • Memory leak situations
  • Poor pagefile performance

There are performance counters given to be monitored, as well as a discussion as to what they mean and what thresholds you should be worried about. Since database platforms tend to be heavy on memory usage, any DBA on Windows should keep this in his or her back pocket.
