I can't see the RadiusNT machine having a problem (most peoples
SQL Server isn't that powerful). Run task mananger and see whats
taking up so much memory. One thing most people don't know, is that
when you are on the process tab, you can select which columns will be
displayed. its VERY useful to add the virtual mem column, to see
whats using VM as well (you'll note SQL Server has a LOT more VM than
physical Mem).
