What is Target Server Memory (KB)?

 

To  super simplify  in conventional memory model  SQL Server calculates something like target1 and target2 pages using below formula

 

               

Target1 = Current committed pages of SQL Server + ( Available Physical Memory – min (Total Physical Memory Pages / 20, Available Physical Memory Pages / 2))

ullAvailPageFile: The maximum amount of memory the current process can commit, in bytes. This value is equal to or smaller than the system-wide available commit value. To calculate the system-wide available commit value, call GetPerformanceInfo and subtract the value of CommitTotal from the value of CommitLimit.

 

If (Max Server Memory < ullAvailPageFile)

{

Target2= Max Server Memory

}

Else

{

Target2=Total Physical Memory

}

 

Target Server Memory (KB) =Minimum (Target1,Target2)

 

So if AvailablePhysicalMemory is very high (or) when MaxServermemory is low then Target Server Memory (KB) would give you the MaxServerMemory  else value derived from above formula.
