SQL 2000 SP4 EE 32 Bit - SQL Is Not Using All Of The Memory Allocated To It.

May 17, 2007

I recently changed the max. memory option in SQL from 24 GB to 30GB but the perfmon counters still only show 24 GB. Any ideas on why it is not recognizing the change? The server has Win 2003 EE and 32 GB of RAM.

SQL Server Admin 2014 :: Analysis Services Not Taking Allocated Memory?

Mar 14, 2014

We have run into an issue on a dedicated SSAS 2012 SP1 server where the allocated memory is not being utilized, causing some slowness in use, connections, and queries.

Total Memory on the server is 512, and after startup, the utilized memory gets up to a max of 60GB and stops there. Checking the Resource Monitor, msmdsrv.exe is only taking around 39GB overall. With the current properties, that should be at 330GB. Am I missing something in the settings or in configuration that should be changed?

Version: SQL Server 2012 SP1 Enterprise (11.0.3000)
OS: Windows Server 2012 Datacenter - Fully patched and up to date
Databases: 2 Tabular models
Server: 512GB RAM

Current memory configuration:

Hard Memory Limit - 0 (Default)
LowMemoryLimit - 65% (Default)
TotalMemoryLimit - 95% (Default is 80)
VertiPaqMemoryLimit - 60% (Default)
VertiPaqPaginingPolicy - 1 (Default)
MemoryHeapType - 2 (Default)

Sql Server 2000 Using Less Memory After More Memory Added

Aug 22, 2007

sql server 2000 is running on windows server 2003 ... 4gb of memory on server .... 2003 was allocated 2.3gb nd sql server was allocated (and using all of it) 1.6gb for total of approx 4gb based on idera monitor software ... all memory allocated betweeen the OS and sql server .... then 4 more gb of memory added for total now of 8g ... now idera monitor shows 1.7gb for OS and 1.0 gb for sql server ..... 'system' info shows 8gb memory with PAE ... so I assume that the full 8gb can now be addressed .... why are less resources being used now with more total memory .... especially sql server ..... i thought about specifying a minimum memmry for sql server but i amnot convinced that would even work since it seems that this 1gb limit is artificial .... it it used 1.6 gb before why would it not use at least that much now ??

thank you

Does anyone know how or where to adjust Ram Memory usage for SQL 2000.
      I've just added Changed the 512 MB Ram that came with the Server and Exchanged it with 4 GIG Ram . Is it a good Idea to allow only 2GiG for SQL . I 've heard that SQL will take/use all Ram that you install if you let. If this is true
Can anyone advise on how/where to make adjustments. Thank You...

Configuration Of Memory For SQL 2000

Apr 16, 2003

I am looking for recommandations regarding the memory distribution for SQL 2000 server. In the memory tab of the server properties you can define use a fixed memory size or dynamically configure SQL server or even reserve physical memory for SQL server.
Are there any hints available or must it be handled according trial and error?

Thanks for any info

Memory In Sqlserver 2000

Aug 16, 2004

Running sqlserver 2000 on a w2k server with 1gb of memory. After a reboot the memory usage is around 500m but quickly climbs. At 1 point it was up to 1.5gb so it must have been swapping. Are there any good docs about this or any recommendations on how to limit sqlserver from using all the memory. It is the only application on the server so it isn't affecting anything else so maybe it isn't a problem. I just wanted to get people's inpit on this.

Memory Allocation In SQL 2000

Sep 13, 2007

I would like to ask regarding the memory allocation fo SQL Server 2000. For example if my Data Server have 8GB physical memory installed how much memory can SQL Server 2000 utilize? Based on my research and understing SQL 2000 Server can only utilize 3GB memory? But using the AWE you can set the memory to a maximum server memory?

SQL Server 2000 Std Memory

Feb 12, 2007

I have SQL Server 2000 STD installed on a Windows Server 2003 STD machine. It's essentially the only app on this box. I have 4GB of RAM installed. SQL is configured to dynamically allocate memory. I run a batch file daily to restart the SQL services as SQL does not seem to release memory once it's got it. I don't think this is a problem because, like I said, it's basically the only app. But I want to make sure my OS memory settings and SQL's memory settings are optimized. Will adding the /3gb switch to the boot.ini file make a difference? Also, can someone educate me a little on PAE and AWE?

SQL Server 2000 Memory Issues

Aug 23, 2007

Every day or two I have to restart my SQL Server because users are receiving timeouts and very slow page loads.  My mem usage in Task Manager show that SQL Server is at 1,200,000k compared to 400,000k when I restart it.  Performance Monitor also shows that Buffer Manager/Target Pages and Total pages are maxed out.  Any advice?  Thanks!

SQL Server 2000 And Memory Consumption

Sep 14, 2005


We have a SQL Server 2000 that has been working nice
without any issues. Lately we noticed the fact that the amount of memory that
it is using has increased and once it took down the web server as the total
amount of memory used was 2G. Due to this fact I have set Memory Max to 500MB.
Now as I look in Task Manager the Memory usage is at 530396k which is 518MB.
Any reason why would it exceed the 500MB?

What we did before was to stop the SQL Server and restart it, and it takes about
2 days until it gets back to +500MB.

What can I do to stop this behavior?

SQL Server 2000 Memory Issues

Jun 13, 2006

Dear All,

We have a Windows 2003 Enterprise server with SQL Server 2000 Enterprise on it. This has the AWE settings for 'max memory setting' to 5120MB. This server has 6GB of memory, or rather about 5.8GB due to PAE. From yesterday morning the server has become almost unresponsive when the SQL service is running, and pretty much all the memory, ie < 1MB on average is listed as being free.

The database has been growing constantly and is now 46GB, with database file size of 67GB.

We moved the database onto a new box which was being prepared for another service, and this has 8GB or ram and no AWE settings. It is running fantastic.

We are going to rebuild the original box and the SAN structure, but I want to do some fiddling before we do. I was going to set awe-enabled to 0 to see if that setting was allowing the OS to have no memory, but from reading http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sql/2000/maintain/failclus.mspx it says If AWE is enabled and is taking too much memory, SQL Server must be shut down to reconfigure it, causing downtime (which makes a high availability option such as failover clustering less available). Because the memory pages used by the instance of SQL Server are taken from the nonpageable pool of Windows memory, none of the memory can be exchanged. This means that if the physical memory is filled up, SQL Server cannot use the page file set up on a physical disk to account for the surplus in memory usage. How do you reconfigure AWE settings if the SQL service is shutdown?

Also, how can I figure out whether the server is deficient in physical RAM, or it is just a 'max memory' setting we need to tweak, or is it just trial and error?

Incase it might help, we have ~3 meaningful DB's on the server apart from 'master'. One is an archive DB ~80GB, one is ~5MB and the live DB which is the size mentioned above. Unfortunately I don't know table sizes.

MSSQL 2000 SP4 Memory Leak

Oct 5, 2005

Greetings all!

On one of our intranet SQL servers running under Windows 2000 SP 3,
MSsql 2000 SP4 seems to gradually "eat" away all available memory (with no obvious reason for it) until a certain limit is reached, forcing the server to slow down substantially since the OS has to SWAP continuously.

I would appreciate any suggestions at this point on how to tackle this problem :)

Thank you!

SQL 2000 Cluster Memory Settings

Jan 31, 2008

I have an Active/Active/Passive cluster with 64GB RAM on each node running SQL 2000 EE, AWE is enabled as well as the PAE switch, all is dandy with that.

Should I configure each SQL Instance to have only a max mem usage of 32GB in the event both failover to the same node ? or will the memory allocation be handled without any issue if each node is configured to use 64GB ?

SQL Server 2000 2GB Memory Limit?

Jul 23, 2005

SQL Server 2000 SP3 on a Dell dual 2.4GHz Xeon box 3GB RAM Windows 2KSP4. Two aplication dbs, each less than 2GB in size.Had a problem where we would run Solomon queries and what not againstthe box. It had 2GB RAM, and sqlserv.exe would take up to 1.85GB ofRAM, exhausting the physical RAM on the box. SQL would choke and theSolomon users would have problems, and I would have to restart the SQLservice.I added another GB of RAM, bringing the box to 3GB, and increased thepaging file. The OS sees it, and SQL sees it. I check EnterpriseManager, and tell SQL to dynamically configure memory, and it offers anupper limit of 3071MB, so it "sees" the 3GB.I can stress the box with queries to the point that sqlserv.exe takes1.99GB of memory (as viewed through Task Manager) and then SQL serverchokes. It never goes past 2GB, and the OS and box continue runningfine.Does SQL server 2000 have some upper limit, or do I just need to changesome setting through EM?Thanks.

Memory Allocation In MS-SQL 2000 Instances

Mar 17, 2006

Hi,From a previous sys-admin I inherited a a MS-SQL (2000) machine with 3instances. It is a nice machine with 4 Gb of memory but the memory allocationis very weird:Instance A: 1400MbInstance B: 1000MbInstance C: 80Mb (!)Instance C is performing badly under a bit of pressure which seems not strangeconsidering these allocations.With that in mind, is there a way to check and re-allocate memory? I'd like tosee if the instances really need these amounts of memory and if not, to movesome over to other instances.Thanks!Dries Bessels

SQL 2000 X32 OnWin2003 X64 Memory Config

We have a new server (4 dual-core CPUs and 8GB ram) with Windows 2003 x64 installed. We need to put SQL 2000 on the system and want to maximize it for sql performance (will be dedicate to SQL). Do we enable awe in SQL? Are there any 3GB switches we need to put in the boot.ini for the 32-bit subsystem? Should we use the 32bit version of Windows and just use awe and pae?

SQL Server 2000 -- Taking Over My Memory

Feb 3, 2006

I am running SQL Server 2000 on a desktop PC. Just recently upgraded my PC to 2gig of ram from 1 gig, in part, to try and fix the problem below. Didn't work. Have SP3 installed but not SP4 at this point.

When I open up query analyzer and edit some code, regardless of whether I actually execute the code, SQL server eventually sucks up available and cached memory to the point that my system comes to an effective halt --takes forever to do anything either in SQL server or other applications. In the task manager PF Usage climbs to just over the 2gig memory limit.

I conceptually understand the dynamic memory operation of SQL server ... but why is it sucking up most available memory when nothing is executing?

Is there a way I can release/clear the memory? Ideally, code that coould be run under a stored procedure would best meet my needs. Right now, I am "fixing" by shutting down and then restarting SQL server.

SQL 2000 Not Listening On Shared Memory. Why Not?

Apr 18, 2007

One of my production SQL Server 2000 systems is listening on TCP and Named Pipes, but not on Shared Memory.

This server has a lot of scheduled jobs that are internal to this box. I assume these jobs would benefit from using shared memory instead of TCP/IP, but I can't figure out why it doesn't use shared memory already and how to correct that.

Thanks in advance for all assistance.

Does anyone have any advice or useful experience configuring memory management for SQL Server 2000 and 2005 instances residing on the same box? I'm looking for advice on whether I should just completely leave it up to SQL Server and Windows to allocate memory or should I attempt to put ceilings on certain instances.

Any help is appreciated!

Sql 2000 Mem Setting Versus Real Memory

Nov 3, 2006

I have a client server that has win2000 on it with sql 2000 enterprise edition. The box has 4 gig of memory on it. I noticed today that the sql server was set to use all 4 gig (even though I know sql can't really access that memory because sql can't really utilize the 2-4 gig range). Is there overhead or a downside to leaving it at this, or should I set it to 2 gig

SQL 2000 Server Memory Issue! CRITICAL!

Apr 4, 2007

Good day everyone!

The issue I'm going to pose here has to do with SQL Server allocated memory BEING EXHAUSTED by an application (a simple data receiver from GPS units) when the number of units connecting to it is considerably increasing.
This happens to an extent that no more connections from the units are valid and therefore lots of data (Afterwards) is being lost.
This causes a real problem with the installations and the projects which are running the system.

I will hereby post all of the info which might be useful for any Database Experts among you, so you can perhaps help me figure out the source(s) of the mentioned problem, and possible solution(s) of the issue.

1- The Operating System used:
Windows 2003 Server (Ent. Edition)

2- The Database Server used:
Microsoft SQL 2000 Server

3- The amount of memory:
1 GB (but on some sites there are 4 GB and the same problem
is faced)

4- The conditions where the issue happens
When the amount of the received data - which gets written to
the SQL Server tables - exceeds a certain limit.

5- Number of applications used:
We are using two applications:
a- The receiver, which is a simple application that only
receives the data from the GPS units installed at the cars
of the clients' fleet(s), and writes them to the database
(Day and Night - running all the time), so the memory used
gets bigger and bigger till it floats the memory used by
MS SQL Server 2000. As a result of this the connections
made from the units furtherly to this point (to the receiver)
are not being received and written to the database.

b- the other application is quite heavy.. it does data
management on SQL Server 2000 and exhausts the CPU.
It reads from tables and makes analysis for GPS data...
This is done while "vehicle tracking".. so it makes
calculations on the received data and stores them into
output tables.

6- The programming language used in writing these 2 applications:
Delphi 7

7- What are we doing right now to handle this problem?
We need to flush the memory on periodical basis.
This is being done by stopping the SQL Server, or by
restarting the PC.
And it is not solving the problem entirely, especially that
there must be a way to handle this.
BTW, the memory is not being flushed when we turn the
application off.

8- What do we need to know?

a- We've found, after research, that there are "Temporary tables" or
objects in SQL Server 2000, that the DB system creates.. also page
files, and temp tables.
What are these for? And does handling them in a certain manner help
solve the problem?
b- Is there a way to monitor our applications to see where they are
increasing the usage of memory and how this is happening?
c- Is there a script that writes to the database that we can use to see if
the problem is from our applications? And in case it is, then is there a
command we should write or a function or script we should run in order
to flush the MS SQL 2000 Server periodically, so that it doesn't flood?

What comments can you have on this issue?
Are there solutions at hand?

I thank everyone for trying to help!

All the best :beer: :beer:

P.S. you can write to me at: database1980 (AT) hotmail (DOT) com
