That's perfectly normal.

You can't. The question is not even relevant, as it is the result of
a collective effort.

When SQL Server reads data from disk, it saves the data in the cache,
because memory access is much less expensive than disk access. Thus,
the strategy is keep as much as possible in cache.

You can constraint how much memory SQL Server can use, but only do this
on machines where SQL Server really competes with other applications.
(A developer workstation is such an example.)

Hi, My production machine has 2G of memory, when aspnet_wp.exe goes up to about ~1.2G of memory usage, I start get out-of-memory exception.

Would anyone know please help? thanks!

I have a loading process that periodically inserts a lot of relatively large files (up to 400MB) into a few substantial tables (about 50GB). Sometimes, after inserting many files with no problem, the DB server memory usage will suddenly jump from about 4.5GB to about 5.5GB (the server has 4GB physical), the normally heavy disk activity will stop, and the normally low CPU utilization will spike to about 90%, and stay there, and the DB will...

I am trying to shutdown a database server in the Application_End event handler on the Global.asax page. So far I am trying this only on the development server that comes with Visual Studio 2005.

At this point the application is no longer running, so why didn't the event handler ever get called?...
