Hi,

Windows 2003 Enterprise can have pagefiles larger than 4092mb, is there a point where too large a PF is not good.  Just asking with the idea that the larger the file the more i/o is needed to utilize it.

Thanks,

Dave

Yes, if you're getting high paging then you're going to suffer performance because these are page breaks or applications thinking data is in memory but it's on disk. The size you have is prob normal of course depends on size of org etc. But normally very high page disk is incorrect memory optimization settings for Exchange.

this depend
now before we can say anything
tell us what is the Total Physical memory and what is the process that taking the memory

and do this
Open the task Manager-- go to processes -- in View menu select (Select Colums)-- and do a check next to Virtual Memory Size and click ok

you will find a new Colums has been added to your Task Manager named as VM size
Rearrange the display to make the task that taking a lot of  PF on the top
and Please tell us the processes and each one how much is it taking
or simply do a print screen and post it here

but Keep in maind 4 GB is a lot
but I have more
its 6 :( but the server is over loaded with SQL and Exchange and Antivirus and nother thing ..
