windows – How do I limit MS SQL Server memory usage? – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/26

Sometimes you need this so it easier to run other services on the same system: [WayBack] windows – How do I limit MS SQL Server memory usage? – Server Fault.

Thanks wfaulk.

From How to configure memory options using SQL Server Management Studio:

Use the two server memory options, min server memory and max server memory, to reconfigure the amount of memory (in megabytes) managed by the SQL Server Memory Manager for an instance of SQL Server.

  1. In Object Explorer, right-click a server and select Properties.
  2. Click the Memory node.
  3. Under Server Memory Options, enter the amount that you want for Minimum server memory and Maximum server memory.

You can also do it in T-SQL using the following commands (example):

exec sp_configure 'max server memory', 1024

Hopefully I’ve been able to integrate some of the ideas in the links below in

One of the features I wanted there was to be able to add optional switches like --raw, --iec or --si to it similar to what as the btrfs qgroup show subcommand has.

It seems possible with bash, but it is not trivial, at least not for me as a non-frequent bash user, so here are some links to get me started:

In retrospect, other languages than bash might have been a better choice for a script like that (:


PS, some btrfs references:
