I have a client who has asked me a question regarding the "constant grinding" that has recently started happening on one of his servers. I looked at it, and a few things looked a little odd to me. First, the store.exe process was using more than 1GB of memory, and second, the w3proxy.exe process had over 200MB of VM. SO, I go into exchange manager, and look at the mailbox sizes... and they total to a little more than 1GB. Is exchange storing a copy of the email store in main memory? If so, is there a way I can cap this limit to something like, say, 500MB? He only has one server (SBS 2000), and it has 2GB of memory, but exchange is still bringing it to its knees.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
