Hi Team,

 

I am working on an Azure Analysis Services project and noticed that after clear and full rebuild, if I pause the AAS instance and restart it, I can reclaim a good portion of memory dropping almost by half from ~60 GBs to ~30 GBs without impacting user performance or data. 

 

I have found little information as why that is and whether that is a recommended practice.

 

Any information, white papers or links about this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Kelly
