  • Disabling FileSystem Caching

    hi ,
    is there any option in Windows Server 2008/Vista 64 Bit for disabling for File System caching ...
    meanwhile i had set

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache to 0

    this does serves the purpose to a great extent but does disables that effectively ,
    windows v6 64 bit oses caches filesystem objects intensively then flushes back in a Lazy manner which is not required in our setup

      This is what I could find:
      http://www.techspot.com/guides/72-wi...mory-tweaking/

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\SessionManager\Memory Management].
      LargeSystemCache. (Hexadecimal or Decimal). This setting controls the size of the file system cache.

      When set to 0 (Default) a standard sized file system cache is allocated (Less than 10MB RAM); this is recommended as it provides best Application performance.
      When set to 1 this enables the use of a large file system cache (up to total RAM amount minus 4MB!); this option is only suitable when Windows Vista is acting as a Server not as a gaming system or for other workstation use as it will be detrimental to performance as Microsoft notes:
      When you enable System cache mode on a computer that uses Unified Memory Architecture-based video hardware or AGP, you may experience a severe and random decrease in performance. The Drivers for these components consume a large part of the remaining application memory when they are initialized during startup.

          Any particular reason why you want to fully disable it?

            Thread moved from Server 2000/2003 Forum as it seems 2008 related.
