Meeting Topic: “Is my SQL Server having Memory Pressure?”

As we all know, SQL Server loves memory and will use as much as it can get. However, when there is memory pressure, we need to use our DBA skills to identify what is causing the pressure.

During this session we will explore how SQL Server uses memory and how to properly configure memory settings. We will discuss the use of DMVs and other tools to help us find what is consuming the most memory and some potential solutions.

We will also go over a suite of 140 SSRS reports that can make doing this assessment much easier!
