Hi,

I have just create a new database server (intel Xenon E5620 2.4 Ghz * 2 processors) with win server 2008 R2 standard 64 bit.
i have just installed sql server 2008 Stranded 64 bit and copied a development database in it to test.
Server is having 8 GB RAM and out of this 7.5 GB is used by sqlsrvr.exe without any load and 0% CPU usage.

why this happens ?
what will be happen when i make this server live ? there are at least 600 users will work on this server, will this work or not ?

my older server is having 4 GB RAM and sql 2000, it is working using 1.91 GB RAM. New server is much more better then older one.

thanks.

You can configure the amount of memory SQL Server can use:
Server Memory Server Configuration Options

Normally SQL Server takes only the memory that it needs, but if it does, it doesn't necessary give it back to the OS.

its 64 bit

sql server uses maximum it want on 64-bit machine and reserve it even though its ideal.
when other applications on server needs memory it will release it ... so nothing to worry about it.

still if you dont want this to happen you can set max server memory option using sp_configure.




about your old server ..

It must be 32-bit server. in that case sql server maximum can use 2 GB memory unless you provide /3GB or /PAE option in boot.ini file
