Hi All,

I am interested in finding out how much memory SQL Server is exactly utilising?

But doesn't wanna use the Perfmon counters at all.

Mine SQL Server version is SQL Server 2008 R2 EE 64 bit.


Kindest Regards,

Jeetendra

In Windows Server 2008 and greater, you can use the Resource Monitor to observe how SQL server utilises memory (accessable via Task manager)
