Has anyone ever seen a SQL Server service suddenly stop when OS runs out of memory? SQL Server had memory left over to use within the SQL Server maximum memory setting. It looks like there wasn't enough memory for the OS as this maxed out. It probably then started paging but the page files was smaller than total RAM. I expected the server to just get slower but the SQL Server service suddenly stopped!!! Anyone know why the service may stop? I have read this could lead to system instability but can't find an example of why the service may stop.... any ideas???
