may number of page faults at a great extent cause a slow down on cpu? i noticed that microsoft sql(2000) service manager caused more than 10 million page faults while cpu loads seem normal(with a 54 days of server uptime). is it normal? as i restart the service manager cpu get relaxed and responsiveness improved. i need some comprehensive information on paging mechanism of nt kernel to explain this. i'm looking for your comments.
