  • Pagefile size

    Is there a recommended size for a pagefile on Server 2003? Eg, like NT4 used to be something like set the pagefile to 1.5 x memory + 11Mb.

    Should the Minimum and maximum settings be the same, or should it be variable, or let the system manage it?

    The Microsoft formula now seems to be RAM x 1.5 minimum and RAM x 2.5 Maximum.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2
