On fixing an issue we are having with our backups I am following instructions where it is telling me to add the Trace Flag -g384. This is all good but I am not sure what this perameter actually does. I have had a quick google but have come up with nothing. Does anyone know what this perameter does or affects.




Seems you mixed some points...

Check SQL Server Service Startup Options description for details about command line parameters: -g (memory allocation) and -T (trace flags)

  • Thanks this cleans it up I will also now question the rest of the instucktions as they stated -g as a trace flag. – Andy Dec 7 '10 at 13:24
