Updates To sp_PressureDetector

These Colors Don’t Gum

If you head to my GitHub repo, there’s an update to sp_PressureDetector, a free script I publish to help you figure out when your server is under CPU or memory pressure.

While working with a client recently, I found it useful to illustrate how much of their memory was used by different memory consumers.

  • Buffer pool
  • Total other
  • Top 5 other

It helps put in perspective just how many different things are asking for a piece of your precious RAM.


This is a bad example from my personal server laptop, but you get the idea.

Anyway, that’s that. clink over to my GitHub repo to download it.

Thanks for reading!
