Having performance issues, Saravan? Can you go into some more detail please?

I have a RAM of 32 GB. We are maintaining around 80 databases. But the priority is for only 3 databases. I want all the pages in RAM for those 3 databases instead of all the 80 databases.
The database size is just 3 GB. Hope u got my question??? I feel its possible to keep all the pages of a particular database in a RAM!!

Saravanan

If those databases are used frequently then the data pages that are often used will be in cache.

There's no way to prioritise memory usage between databases on the same instance. Only way to do that is to split the databases over two instances and configure the memory so that the one that has the priority databases has more memory.

Couldn't one just 'pin' the tables in the specific database and that would hold them in memory? I have never done this but I have heard of it.

No. DBCC PinTable is a No-operation in SQL 2005/2008. The command's there, it does nothing.

OK, thanks. I did not know that it was depreciated in 2005/08.
