We have our application using SQL Server 2008 running on windows 2008 64 bit machine. The application was working fine for some days. Now the client has started reporting that the application hangs after certain transactions and that the cpu utilization of SQL Server 2008 is very high.

After analyzing this problem, we increased the max memory settings, AWE enabled options on that machine. After doing the setting changes, the application worked fine for two weeks. After two weeks the same problem has appeared again. The application has started hanging when the SQL Server cpu utilization is high.

RAM on the machine is 8GB. So we have configured 7 GB of RAM (max server settings) for SQL Server 2008.

Is this known issue wiith SQL Server 2008? Is there any solution to this problem? What can be done to stop my application from hanging?

Thanks in advance
