Unload due to memory pressure


Good day,

I am not a SQL DBA, but need to find out what's happening on our customer's database. Using SQL Server 2012.

I see the following messages in the error log:

2016-06-14 05:08:17.01 spid17s FlushCache: cleaned up 104806 bufs with 53316 writes in 82579 ms (avoided 20040 new dirty bufs) for db 10:0

Please let me know if anyone here could tell what's wrong and where to start fixing?

Thank you,


Here is a very good article on the issue.
