    Welcome to the forums!.
    SQL use the memory dynamically. I don't think there is a number between users and memory. It depends on others factor like DB size, how many DB, is SQL dedicated?, etc.
    In general more memory more performance.

    Hi Luis,
    nice to meet you and thank you for your help..
    yes, SQL use the memory dynamically.. that's what caused me a little confused to calculate memory to get baseline to memory sizing of database server..
    or do you have a best practice to memory sizing of database server ? but this sizing is based on our database production server that already i have now..
    thank you for your help..
