Improvement


When the new trace flag (TF) 8089 is specified as one of the startup parameters, SQL Server starts to track memory allocations for faster filtered dump generation. The small amount of overhead may be observed with this trace flag.

As soon as the TF 8089 is enabled, you will notice an error message that resembles the following in the error log:

Datetime Server      Page exclusion bitmap is enabled.
