Exchange 2007 eating memory - 4.Aug.2008 7:32:19 AM

Hi all,

I've got exchange 2007 sp1 running on windows 2008 and it is EATING up so much memory.

I have 4GB's in this server and Store.exe (Microsoft Exchange MDB Store) is has at the moment 2,365,392KB of memory.

If I reboot the server it sits arround 1gb for a while but then keeps rising.

One thing i've noticed on all outlook 2007 clients is the icon in the system tray is constantly (ie 70% of the time) syncronising folders.

Has anyone seen this ammount of memory being used?

Exchange will use as much memory as it needs to.
You bought that memory to be used, didn't you?
That is only half of the total RAM available, so it would seem normal.

The only time you have to be concerned is whether that memory is not released when something else needs it. Otherwise Exchange using the vast majority of the RAM is not a problem.

As for the constant updating of the folders, there can be many reasons for that. You might want to look at the disk performance as Exchange is not memory hungry, it is storage hungry.
