SqlConnectionSpecifying packet size

Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;
=myPassword;Trusted_Connection=False;Packet Size=4096;

By default, the Microsoft .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server sets the network packet size to 8192 bytes. This might however not be optimal, try to set this value to 4096 instead. The default value of 8192 might cause Failed to reserve contiguous memory errors as well, read more here.


This connection string (Specifying packet size using SqlConnection) can be used for connections to SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 7.0.
