index create memory

Type: Advanced, self-configuring

Default value: 0

The index create memory option is used to control the amount of memory used by index creation sorts. It is a self-configuring option and usually doesn’t need to be adjusted. However, if you are having problems with the creation of large indexes, you might want to try specifying a KB value here that will contain the sort portion of the index create.

The following is an example of this option:

exec sp_configure 'index create memory', 1000goRECONFIGUREgo
