CPU

In addition to the high performing storage requirements, M3 BE database workloads also require proper processing power. The common reason for CPU bottlenecks is insufficient hardware resources.

RAM

One of the most important factors that influence SQL Server performance is memory and SQL Server needs a lot of memory. If SQL Server will run short on memory, query response time, CPU usage and disk I/O can increase significantly as Windows begins paging more and more RAM to the hard drive. A good way to keep database server performance is to make sure the database is using as much RAM as possible to avoid to rely as heavily upon disk which is exponentially slower than RAM. The total amount of memory required is directly related to the size of the M3 BE database that is hosted on the server.
