Our production database server has 16GB of memory. It is running Windows 2003 Server Enterprise and SQL Server 2000 Enterprise. In the boot.ini we have the /PAE option. In SQL Server we have AWE enabled, dynamic memory managemement, 0MB min, and 14336MB maximum. The database server's only purpose is to run SQL Server. So I have three questions based on this information. 1. Have we configured our server correctly for using AWE? 2. Did we allocate SQL Server too much/too little memory (14336MB)? 3. How would I tell if SQL Server actually using the memory we gave it? Are there some specific counters I should look at? Quest Performance Analysis is not much help as it simply shows that around 15400MB of memory are in use. If you look at task manager it is the same thing. I cache hit ratio since this server has been put in has averaged above 97%.
