I have a NT Server 3.51 as a Internet dedicated server (Pentium 133 with 48MB RAM) running HTTP, SMTP/POP, FTP servers and 16 RAS users. I want to optimize the use of RAM memory without loss of performance. What is the best choice for the Server service: Minimize Memory Used, Balanced or Maximize Throughput for Network Application?

If you use an NT as an internet server. (so not as a file server int the network) you should select 'Maximize Throughput for Network Applications'.
This will minimize the caching of the file system and it will favor to take memory from the cache to the applications. HTTP, SMTP. FTP are implemented using services ( = applications.)

In our application, we can get speedups up to 75 % when we select this option.
