    We have a dedicated SQL Cluster with 8GB memory, AWE enabled, 4 processors. It's passive/active Recently, we have users complain the slowness of the system. What counters should I use to see whether it is a Memory or Process issue ?

    you might also try my list of performance counters, there a few not on Brad's list

    also, be alert to the situation where it is slow due to traceable causes, or horribly slow for no apparent cause, this is a special situation for which there are good documents explaining why and how to resolve

    thanks..

    Since this OS has AWE enabled which maps & unmaps memory, anything I should pay particular attention ?

    just make sure the os is not paging if sql used too much memory
