Issue: Newbie not seeing RAM disk in Windows perf mon. Possibly because RAM disks live well above the HAL layer.
Goal: Use RAM disk for SQL server 2014 Temp data base for speed and to save my poor SSD drives. 20 to 50 Mb transferred regularly as TempDB is hit hard.
Using: 30 day free RAM Disk 4.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10, post 1607 patch set, Intel i7 NUC with 32 Gig memory. SOPHOS anti virus and a few programs. Non gamer.
History: Testing out RAM disk. Everything works fine. Rebooted multiple times ensuring the system is solid. Created and dropped several RAM disks in tuning the system without issue. Biggest issue was windows security and files not inheriting "full control" when moved from one drive to another.
Wanting: Should I see the RAM disk in Windows perf mon? If not, how do I see which files are being hit hardest? Reads/Writes, etc.
