You can create a resource pool by using SQL Server Management Studio or Transact-SQL. To understand the principals of resource pools, see Resource Governor Resource Pool.

Limitations and Restrictions

The maximum CPU percentage must be equal to or higher than the minimum CPU percentage. The maximum memory percentage must be equal to or higher than the minimum memory percentage.

The sums of the minimum CPU percentages and minimum memory percentages for all resource pools must not exceed 100.

Permissions

Creating a resource pool requires CONTROL SERVER permission.

To create a resource pool by using SQL Server Management Studio

  1. In SQL Server Management Studio, open Object Explorer and recursively expand the Management node down to and including Resource Governor.

  2. Right-click Resource Governor, and then click Properties.

  3. In the Resource pools grid, click the first column in the empty row. This column is labeled with an asterisk (*).

  4. Double-click the empty cell in the Name column. Type in the name that you want to use for the resource pool.

  5. Click or double-click any other cells in the row you want to change, and enter the new values.

  6. To save the changes, click OK

To create a resource pool by using Transact-SQL

  1. Run the CREATE RESOURCE POOL or CREATE EXTERNAL RESOURCE POOL statement specifying the property values to be set.

  2. Run the ALTER RESOURCE GOVERNOR RECONFIGURE statement.

Example (Transact-SQL)

The following example creates a resource pool named poolAdhoc.

CREATE RESOURCE POOL poolAdhoc  
WITH (MAX_CPU_PERCENT = 20);  
GO  
ALTER RESOURCE GOVERNOR RECONFIGURE;
