Consider the following scenario:
- You use SQL Server 2017 on a high-end Linux host that has lots of main memory. For example, 6 terabytes (TB) of main memory.
- You enable trace flag (TF) 834 that causes SQL Server to use large page memory allocation.
In this scenario, after SQL Server startup, you may notice that the memory ramp-up phase in Linux with TF 834 enabled is longer.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
