Troubleshoot local NTA Flow Storage Database

Issue

If you are installing NTA Flow Storage Database on the same server as your NPM/NTA and Orion SQL Database, you can experience performance problems.
This configuration is not recommended because all performance extensive components (NTA/NPM, Orion SQL Database, and NTA Flow Storage Database) share the same hardware. If you still need to use this configuration, you can try to optimize NTA using the following workarounds. However, to achieve optimal performance, consider installing NTA/NPM, Orion SQL Database and NTA Flow Storage Database on separate servers.

Resolution

Try one of the following workarounds:
  • Install the NTA Flow Storage Database on a different physical disk that the SQL database.
  • Limit the memory allocated for SQL. For more information, see this Microsoft Support article.
  • Limit the number of processors that can be used by SQL.
