  • PF (Page File) set up problem

    Server windows 2003 sp1:

    Paging file size for selected drive C is (custom selected) Initial 2046 MB,
    and maximum 4092 MB. It is currently allocated 4081 MB. Computer RAM memory is 8GB.

    Server functions as a database MS SQL 2005 server, and it is used under heavy insert database operations

    The problem is that it can be seen on windows task manager there is on PF usage and Page File Usage hHstory around 8.2 GB paging file size not 4081 GB as it is given on virtual memory page set up.



    What went wrong!

    Screen shot please

    Also you are best to have a fixed size page file (max and min same) of at least RAM size

    Is it 32 or 64bit OS?

      Not directed at you Tom but i usually set mine to 1.5 times the amount of RAM for both Min and Max.

        Inclined to agree -- there are so many debates between 1x and 2x RAM
        IMHO with 8Gb RAM, another 8GB is probably sufficient, but no harm in having more as long as its a fixed size

            Looks normal:
            Commit Charge is 12Gb (8GB RAM + 4Gb PF)

            What makes you think the PF is 8 GB?

            btw, attaching a JPG is easier as it appears directly on the page

              Well, the problem is that I have allocated 4 GB, but at same time on my task manager I have 8GB. Why is that?

              I know that I have to have 1.5xram = min and 3 xram=max, but why I have 8GB as my paging file size?

                  Total Memory usage is 8.2 GB -- this is NOT the same as PF usage

                  Read the link in my post #6
