I have 32GB server running a SQL Server instance and I have set the
max server memory to 22 GB which is 75% of the total memory.
What is the reason for SQL Server to exceed its allocated
max server memory setting?
Here is the screenshot of of top 5 allocation list.
When I add all of this up it seems it is almost near to 22 GB. That is why I am wondering: What is the reason my SQL Server is utilising 81% of the server memory, instead of just 75% as per my configuration?
