This is a pretty strange problem so i hope someone can help, this may need to go into the VMWare forum but i'm not sure if its vmware or windows 2008. heres what i got, a windows 2008 64-bit server cleanly installed as a guest OS on a VMWare ESX 3 cluster. This server has installed on it Moss 2007(the enterprise version of sharepoint) 64bit, Mcafee antivirus, and thats about it. what happening is our ipmonitor service is seeing it as using up all the memory. the server has 8GB and the sharepoint deployment is still in the starting phase so we have maby 30 people on it. The SQL DB is on a seperate server which is working fine. what is really starge is if i look in task manager and add up all the memory usage that all the processes are using it shows about 2.5GB, and yes the "show processes for all users" is checked. when i look at the resouces that esx says its using it says 2.5GB and the performance in esx shows 2.5GB. at the button of the task manager it show physical memory at 97% and physical memory usage history under performance in the task manager show it at 7.55GB. i've also tryed using process monitor from sysinternals to see if their were any hidden process but i could find none. We have lots of other production servers on the ESX cluster and nothing else has a problem. the server is not slow and seems to be operating at an expected speed, but i'm very concerend about this mistery high memory usage.
No announcement yet.
Memory maxing out but not showing in task manager
