Is your SQL running on a dedicated machine?
If yes, you can try assigning 70-80% to the SQL server and the remaining for the OS.


Hi Ahmeds08. Yes its on a dedicated server. Well its look like this, i think its the default config. Were i should put it? on the max? 28000MB, is hould be ok? But i was confused the default is 2147483647? Is it MB or KB?
What the correct value should I put it in? The minimum is as it is? zero? Thanks.


you need to put it in the MAX memory field.The value is in MB.


Ok Thanks Ahmeds08.
