1. Here's my SQL Server 2000:
C: (OS + SQL program install )
D: (50GB for Database data files .MDF)
E: (50GB for Database log files .LDF)
F: (other data)
Would you consider this to be optimized?
2. It is my understanding SQL 2000 Enterprise supports a maximum of 2GB memory. Can I use TEMPDB in RAM to enhance the performance? If so, how do I go about configurating my system for optimal performance?
2. SQL Server 2000 Standard edition can support up to 2 GB of memory with Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition. If you upgraded to the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server 2000 a total of 32 GB could be leveraged.
TempDB in RAM was an option with SQL Server 6.5 and is no longer an option with SQL Server 2000.
