      The master database records all the system-level information for a SQL Server system. This includes instance-wide metadata such as logon accounts, endpoints, linked servers, and system configuration settings. Also, master is the database that records the existence of all other databases and the location of those database files and records the initialization information for SQL Server. Therefore, SQL Server cannot start if the master database is unavailable.

      In SQL Server, system objects are no longer stored in the master database; instead, they are stored in the Resource database.The Resource database is a read-only database that contains all the system objects that are included with SQL Server. SQL Server system objects, such as sys.objects, are physically persisted in the Resource database, but they logically appear in the sys schema of every database. The Resource database does not contain user data or user metadata.

    Memory utilization of my system goes high so what is the normal utilization of sql server 2005 and what is the query in sql server 2k5 to find how much memory is utilizing?

    1. Jugal Shah Post author

      Memory utilization depends on the current system load, you can limit the memory use by configuring min/max memory and lock pages in memory.

      To find out the memory usage and troubleshooting use DBCC MEMORYSTATUS command.

    Dear Jugal Sir,
    I am a DBA working in Bangalore, just completed 1 month today.
    Sir, I have 2 questions for you.
    1) How is DBA and Datawarehousing related to one another ?
    2) Can I change my role from a DBA to datawarehousing in the near future ?

    1. Jugal Shah Post author

      Datawarehousing is OLAP, it has data for analysis and Production DBA is OLTP where the data is live. You can change must you must have knowledge of BI Tools and Analysis service.
