Hi all

I've done my research, I've done my testing.

I just want to confirm something

Given that any plan in cache with a size more that 8192 get it's memory allocation from the MultiPage Allocator which is not part of the SQL Buffer Pool. Any any plan in cache with a size more that 8192 will not affect the buffer pool.

I have a system that reports zero for the following query
SELECT  
sum (cp.size_in_bytes) /1024/1024
FROM sys.dm_exec_cached_plans AS cp
where size_in_bytes < = 8192



And returns +- 1500MB for the following query
SELECT  
sum (cp.size_in_bytes) /1024/1024
FROM sys.dm_exec_cached_plans AS cp
where size_in_bytes > 8192


This means that there are no plans in the area of the buffer pool allocated to the plan cache.

Is this right?
