I think what people should take away from this is that you want to get the memory settings on 64 bit correct; set Min/Max memory, and lock pages in memory. If the working set gets trimmed, performance is in the toilet.



Succinctly accurate.

I've whined about misleading questions in the past, but this one seemed perfectly clear. It asked what was the best option to allocate maximum available RAM to SQL Server 64-bit. If you do nothing then it will grab all the memory it can.

This may be the wrong configuration for most servers in the real world, but the answer is not wrong. The question contained a very precise and unambiguous definition of what was meant by "best".

That'll teach me to read the question a little more carefully. Of course, then we couldn't have had a fascinating discussion on AWE and Lock Pages in memory. :-)
