BISQL # 74 – All SQL Query Related to Memory usage details for SQL Server instance

Hi all,

After long time I have started sharing,analyzing scripts again..

I just believe on sharing knowledge rather than keeping it to myself folks..

I will also suggest you to do same and see the difference between world and you !!

Lets get back to my article , In this post I am giving all script Related to Memory usage details for SQL Server instance

In this article we are covering scripts for

  1. Memory Configuration on the Server visible to Operating System
  2. Buffer Pool Usage at Given Moment
  3. Total Memory used by SQL Server instance from Performance Mon
  4. Memory needed as per current Workload for SQL Server instance
  5. Total amount of dynamic memory the server is using for maintaining connections
  6. Total amount of dynamic memory the server is using for locks
  7. Total amount of dynamic memory the server is using for the dynamic SQL cache
  8. Total amount of dynamic memory the server is using for query optimization
  9. Total amount of dynamic memory used for hash, sort and create index operations
  10. Total Amount of memory consumed by cursors
  11. Number of pages in the buffer pool (includes database, free, and stolen
  12. Number of Data pages in the buffer pool
  13. Number of Free pages in the buffer pool
  14. Number of Reserved pages in the buffer pool
  15. Number of Stolen pages in the buffer pool
  16. Number of Plan Cache pages in the buffer pool

Don’t get into fear with this large list just enjoy script and believe me its very simple ..Use it as it is !!

Following all query script and self explanatory

DECLARE @pg_size INT, @Instancename varchar(50)

SELECT @pg_size = low from master..spt_values where number = 1 and type = 'E'

SELECT @Instancename = LEFT([object_name], (CHARINDEX(':',[object_name])))

PRINT '---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRINT 'Memory usage details for SQL Server instance ' + @@SERVERNAME  + ' (' 
    + CAST(SERVERPROPERTY('productversion') AS VARCHAR) + ' - ' +
