Counters of interest are Procedure Cache Pages In Useand Procedure Cache Size (Pages) in the SQL Server Buffer Manager Object,as well as the Procedure Cache Hit Ratio, Procedure Cache Pages, andProcedure Cache Object Counts counters in the SQL Server Cache ManagerObject.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server version 7.0.
