SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for applying the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. A server has been running for a while. Then, you run a query in Microsoft SQL Server 2005. In this scenario, the query performance may be slow.

Additionally, when you query the sys.dm_os_wait_stats dynamic management view, you may notice that there are many rows in which the values of the wait_type column are SOS_RESERVEDMEMBLOCKLIST or DBCC MEMORYSTATUS. This situation indicates that many multipage allocations exist.

This problem occurs only on 64-bit servers that have more than 16 gigabytes (GB) of physical memory.
