I have a server that is primarily used for SSAS, heavy processing, however I have SQL Server on it alongside SSAS, but I don't want sql server to hold ssas back.
I have set the SQL Server MAX memory to only 4 GB, and I don't have any large user databases on it.
TempDB also has been kept to 4 files, low profile.
Should I enable the server features that I normally do, like lock pages in memory and Perform Volume Maintenance Tasks for sql server?
As you can see on the picture below CPU, memory and disk space are relatively OK, but the processing will also be high.
I am really looking for some technical info, so that I can evaluate things up and apply to each situation.
This Windows policy determines which accounts can use a process to keep data in physical memory, preventing the system from paging the data to virtual memory on disk. Locking pages in memory may keep the server responsive when paging memory to disk occurs. The SQL Server Lock Pages in Memory option is set to ON in 32-bit and 64-bit instances of SQL Server 2014 Standard edition and higher when the account with privileges to run sqlservr.exe has been granted the Windows "Locked Pages in Memory” (LPIM) user right.
These are examples of problems I had while managing SSAS from another server:
Linked Server from SQL Server to SSAS
routine to backup ssas databases
