I can see the max memory allocated is 50MB for my instance.
are you sure for this no ? and task manager can give you estimated value for sqlserver.exe

Execute below query on your SQL Server instance:



SELECT CASE counter_name
WHEN 'Target Server Memory (KB)' THEN 'MemoryAssignedToSQLServer'
WHEN 'Total Server Memory (KB)' THEN 'MemoryUsedBySQLServer'
END AS Property,
(cntr_value/1024) AS Value_MB
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE counter_name IN ('Target Server Memory (KB)','Total Server Memory (KB)')




Hope this helps.

No, Task manager gives exact values, not estimated. It can be wrong because it doesn't count memory allocated via the AWE mechanism which is used when SQL has the locked pages in memory privilege.
