Ok, well it seems you've found your problem. 492145 ~= 4 GB. Agreed with @AaronBertrand's recommendation. You should have no problem with hotspots with 6 rows/min.

comment Table Data Space Used Confusion
How many pages does the table have? select sum(page_count) from sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats(db_id(), object_id('dbo.YourTableName'), default, default, 'detailed'); (substitute dbo.YourTableName with the appropriate table name)

comment sql server instance using only a few 100mb. Well below the minimum server memory setting
It doesn't appear as though your instance is under memory pressure. What makes you think that poor performance is due to memory pressure?

comment sql server instance using only a few 100mb. Well below the minimum server memory setting
What is the output of the following query for your instance in question? select counter_name, memory_kb = cntr_value from sys.dm_os_performance_counters where counter_name like 'Target Server Memory%' or counter_name like 'Total Server Memory%';
