  • try to find why SQL is so CPU-hungry using basic diagnostic :

  • One of the things you can try is setting the Max Degree of Parallelism on the SQL instance to be 1. By default it is set to 0 and generally CRM plays better with this setting.

  • Usually expect SQL Server to use a lot of memory, as it's a very memory intensive DBMS.

    You said CRM is hanging (With 500 users), do you only use one CRM box? (With all the services on the same box? E.g. sandbox, async) - This is likely to cause the issue if everything is in one place.

    Recommendation would be to start splitting off services and adding new boxes then monitoring performance instead of going straight to SQL.

  • Hi K1,

    Due to Microsoft documentations, if you have separate Database and application servers you have to assign 16GB to your DB and 8GB of memory to your application server. These recommendations are for 320 users. Hence, when your organization have about 500 users, it is obvious that your server lacks memory. On the other hand SQL is known as a memory using DB. I think you have to improve your server requirements.

    If the answer helped you, remember to mark it as answer.
