Hello,

Today, our Win2K web server ran out of virtual memory.

We had to reboot our server.

How can I determine how much physical memory is being used up?

Is it possible to find out what process is hogging too much physical memory?

Open the task manager and go to the Performance tab.  The mem usage chart is your virtual memory and I believe your limit on Commit Charge is the total of virtual + physical memory.  

You can also go to Computer Management and setup a performance monitor for pagefile usage to keep a history of it.
