A few days back I was resolving a memory issue which caused sql server to stop responding. I was able to figure out the issue by looking into SQL Server Parse DBCC MemoryStatus output. It was the full text search which was taking lot of memory. However, doing this I realised that examining DBCC MemoryStatus output is tedious and time taking and what if it can be parsed into a table. It will be very easy to find memory culprit then. So, here is a powershell script to parse DBCC MemoryStatus.

The script is very simple and has inline comments so it won’t be difficult to understand.

Hope this helps in solving memory issues.
