5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for *anyone* working with SQL Server, January 25, 2010
This review is from: Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting (Paperback)
I recommend this book to everyone. I tell people it just came out, and they look curious because mine's getting worn. The info is clear and concise, and doesn't ramble, so I like it.

A funny example happened running a small VM with SQL Server. It was hanging infrequently and crashing because of RAM memory issues and disk swaps. I had imported the OS into VMware workstation on my laptop, but it had PAE enabled. Disabling PAE, going from 8 to 4KB pages, saved the VM 200MB total RAM utilization. After checking/setting other SQL Server memory settings, and monitoring counters, the system is stable. The memory chapter helped me do all the right things.

I also purchased the .pdf version of the book to search for terms. Its another plus on the laptop. Thanks for a great book!
