I'm collecting the Process(sqlserv)\Working Set counter on one of my servers and getting values like this:

27418284032

What units is this in? Bytes? Pages?

I need to compare these values with the min/max memory settings on my SQL instance.

You can see its description in the "performance monitor":
"Working Set is the current size, in bytes, of the Working Set of this process..."

Thanks, but where do you see that in the link I mentioned?

I took the definition you provided and did a google search; found this link with the exact quote:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1984186/what-is-private-bytes-virtual-bytes-working-set/1986486

I had a feeling the units was in bytes but needed a confirmation.

Thanks for the help!

You're welcome.
The description I talked about is not taken from the MSDN link you mentioned. By the way, in my opinion the MSDN documentation is weaker and weaker...
This is a part of the counter description that you can see when adding the counter to a "performance log" in the perfmon tool.

Oh I see, I should have thought of that, sometimes it's the simplest things that get you... :-)

Thanks again!

Hi

I am also first time trying to use these for analysing issue for alert in error log (A significant part of sql server process memory has been paged out).

What exactly you are trying to do. If you can share your analysis or some more findings , this will be gr8
