    Unanswered: How to increase the SQL Server memory

    We are using SQL server 7.0, our users use to connect to SQL server remotely using Visual Basic Application. When all the users are connected it keeps on increasing the memory utilization and at 1,836,848 KB memory utilization it stops increasing the memory i.e memory utilization become stangnet. The actual amount of physical Memory is around 5GB but SQL server dont increase it after the treshhold level and the performance of the server get affected badly. Any one please suggest me the possible solution.

    In Enterprise Manager,
    - right click on the server name and choose properties.
    - choose memory tab

    You should be able to set your min/max memory settings there. Also look into worker threads (on the processor tab).

    Something else to think about,
    How big is the DB (Gigs) ? How big are the tables being referenced? Perhaps something could be re-designed to make things more efficient. Are there a lot of table scans where you could have indexes, etc..?

    Open the performance moniter and check the sql counters..

    It looks like you're running Standard Edition of SQL2K, which will not recognize any more memory, period! You need to upgrade to Enterprise and then you'll have more options:

    1. /3GB in boot.ini will allow SQL Server to use more than the default 2GB
    2. /PAE in boot.ini and enabling AWE on SQL Server will give SQL service whatever amount you specify.
