I have SQL Server 2012 64bit installed on Windows 2008 R2 x64. 32GB RAM on the server. SQL set to use max of 28GB. This was a new build, not an upgrade.
SQL is reporting the majority of it's memory represented in Locked Page Allocations.
This article supplies me the query I'm running (from sys.dm_os_memory_nodes) which reports the locked_page_allocations, and tells me that Lock Pages in Memory is only set via a Local Security Policy with SQL 2012, by assigning the right to the applicable startup account. I have nothing set with that right.
Task Manager reports a relatively small amount of memory used by sqlserver.exe, however the server is utilizing all of the memory that I provide to SQL.
Others I've talked to with similar setups tell me that they do not have locked page allocations, and their task manager reports the full amount of memory utilized by the sqlserver.exe process.
I have no experience with this side of SQL. Can anyone tell me why I have memory showing in this locked_page_allocations, given that I do not have the Lock Pages in Memory policy assigned to anyone/anything?
