Assume that you execute a columnstore index query in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 or 2016. When the query consumes lots of memory and current committed memory is larger than the "max server memory" setting, a low physical memory condition occurs, and the memory that is assigned to SQL Server is paged out.


The issue was fixed in the following cumulative updates for SQL Server: 

    Cumulative Update 5 for SQL Server 2016 RTM

    Cumulative Update 2 for SQL Server 2016 SP1

    Cumulative Update 4 for SQL Server 2014 SP2

    Cumulative Update 10 for SQL Server 2014 SP1

    Cumulative Update 8 for SQL Server 2014

Each new cumulative update for SQL Server contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous cumulative update. Check out the latest cumulative updates for SQL Server:


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
