Hi All

I am using sql 2008 R2 DB. As per the msdn document max memory that can be allocated to any istance is 1GB. In sql server property it showing 2147483647 MB which is default setting.

The machine on which this server is installed has 4 GB RAM. Will it make any differnce if i increase the sql server max memeory more than 1GB eg 2GB?

We have noticed that sometime memeory utilization on the server is more tah 90%. Please advice.

Regards
HanShi

As per the msdn document max memory that can be allocated to any istance is 1GB.

Can you post a link to the MSDN article where you have read this? Because it is not correct.
You can set the MAX MEMORY setting to a much higher value (see MSDN http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178067(v=sql.105).aspx), depending on the version and the memory available on the machine. Keep in mind to always reseve some memory for the OS when setting the MAX MEMORY for SQL. For example when the machine has 4GB of RAM, only set 2 or 3GB as MAX MEMORY for SQL.

Aah, you didn't mention you are using the SQL Express version.
Yes, this version of SQL is limited to 1GB. You can probably set the MAX MEMORY to a higher setting, but it won't allocated more then 1GB.

Thanks. But some times we notics that the server memeory utilization is more then 90%.
How can we check if its due to the SQL db or some other reason. (we chekced through task manager and it shows sql server is utlizing it)

What does the following return, when run against this server?

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY('edition')

Have you tried to open resource manager in your server? All the current running services you can see here and memory being used.

Cheers! :-)
