It is painful when you have been working on a tough query and you start to get an out of memory error.
“An error occurred while executing batch. Error message is: Exception of type ‘System.OutOfMemoryException’ was thrown”
What in the world? But it was working before! Why is this happening? Is it happening for everyone? Do I need to reboot the SQL Server?
This is a SQL Server Management Studio Error. Usually it means that you have filled up the local memory cache on your machine. Save all your queries and close Management Studio. Once you open it again you “should” be fine, but famous last words right? If that doesn’t work, just reboot. Nice clean memory and you can get back to playing with your super tough query.
