Thankyou to all those who attended my session on 64-bit SQL Server at the UK SQL Server User Group on 17th April 2008.  I've just got round to uploading the slidedeck for those of you that have been asking for it.  You can download it here: http://www.coeo.com/sql-server-events/sql-server-conferences.html.  For anyone interested that wasn't there here is a summary of the content:

  • 32-bit memory management
    • Virtual Address Space
    • memtoleave
    • /3GB
    • /PAE and AWE
  • 64-bit memory management
    • Virtual Address Space
  • History of current 64-bit platforms
  • What value for Max Server Memory setting on 64-bit?
  • AWE/Lock Pages in Memory with 64-bit
  • Pagefile size for 64-bit

I'm going to expand some of these points into separate blog postings for easier reference very soon.  Until then please feel free to comment here with anything I might have missed or alternative views.
