    Unanswered: SQL Server slow


    I am having a problem accessing my sql server database using either Enterprise Manager or Query Analyser. It is awfully slow. Each time I click to expand a database in Enterprise Manager it takes about 25mins to do anything. I was running a DTS package yesterday which failed and have had this problem since. If I access the database via my app everything seems to be running at a normal speed. If I go to my task manager the sql server process is using up 750MB of memory and 750MB of virtual memory??

    Has anyone seen this and know how to fix it???

    Thanks in advance

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    Thanks for the reply Brett. I seemed to have just sorted out the problem. I managed to get into Query Analyzer and found a process that was chewing up all the memory. Not too sure how it got there but I suspect it may have been some sort of transaction that was rolling back as it was still there after a reboot. Managed to kill the process and then drop the database and instantly everything came back to us.
