    I'm having an issue with SQL server's full text index
    we have a full text index query that runs every 20 minutes and the performance sucks(like I need to wait like 6 minutes for it)
    but if I run the query immediately after the first run(that is rather than run it every 20 minutes, I run it every 1 minutes) the second run is good(finish in 2 s)
    I figure out the problem lies in the full text catalog(which is very big) being kick off the cache and then when it re-run, the catalog need to reload to the cache, do u have any solution for this?
    add memory?

    I followed all the suggestions given in the aboved link
    and the problem still exist
    my dedicated server have 2G memory
    I set the cache size in the system to be 7G
    the db cataklog is about 700M
    DB is about 7G in different drive
    I set the max server cache to be 1200MB in SQL server
    but that query is still slow if I run it every 20 minutes
    so I guess my question is is there any way of always keeping the full text catalog in cache?
    Thank u very much

    What is the edition of SQL you are using & also is it a dedicated SQL server?

    You can get poor performance if the server doesnt have internet access
