  • Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition 8gb Memory

    Hi

    Windows 2003 Server (Enterprise Edition) is not using memory more than 4 GB though we have added /PAE /3gb switches in the boot.ini file. We have also tried with only /PAE option.

    Currently, PF usage is more than 7 GB while physical memory free is around 5.5 GB.

    Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

        Sometimes a BIOS update is needed for the hardware to be able to make use of all the physical memory.

          Hi

          Thanks for the responses.

          This is HP DL380 Server.

          We are running SAP XI System on this server.

          Task manager is showing total memory as 8 GB. But, the system is not allocating more than 4 GB and I can see that PF usage is more than 8 GB while memory is used only 3 GB (out of 8 GB).

          Thanks once again for your help.

          Regards

            i recommend checking the configuration of the database.
            there are databases that have a limitation on the memory usage, by default.
            also do you run the hp workload management pack?
            Good Luck

              Hi Shai,

              Thanks for the response.

              No problem with the database. We configured DB to use only 600 MB and memory is allocated accordingly. The problem is with SAP System. When SAP system statedi it's using more of page file than memory. No special configuration steps needed for SAP system to use physical memory.

                600MB ??? how many users? i think that the database needs more ram and when it has a limit it starts using the paging file.
                did you try to allocate more memory to the database??
                Good Luck
