View Resource Governor Properties
Updated: July 18, 2016
Applies To: SQL Server 2016
You can create or configure Resource Governor entities, such as resource pools and workload groups, by using the Resource Governor Properties page in SQL Server Management Studio.
In addition to viewing the properties of Resource Governor entities, you can perform several configuration tasks using the Resource Governor Properties page. For more information, see these topics:
When you click OK after adding, deleting, or moving a workload group or resource pool, the ALTER RESOURCE GOVERNOR RECONFIGURE statement is executed.
If the create or reconfigure operation for the resource pool or workload group fails, a summary error message appears below the title of the property page. To see a detailed error message, click the down arrow on the error message.
You can determine whether there is a configuration pending by querying the sys.dm_resource_governor_configuration dynamic management view to get the current status of is_configuration_pending.
Viewing resource governor properties requires VIEW SERVER STATER permission. The resource governor configuration tasks require CONTROL SERVER permission.
