Monitoring Virtual Memory usage

Hello,

Every now and then we can tell that our server is out of virtual memory because of the http error we get when trying to access our website.

I don't know a lot about this, but I would like to know how the virtual memory usage can be monitored and a event log warning be created (or an e-mail sent) when the virtual memory usage passes some pre-determined threshold.

Is this functionality built into Windows?

Is there cheap software that does it?

Thanks,

Steve

Which counter represents virtual memory?

What unit is it in (for setting a limit)?

Memory object, Committed Bytes:

Committed Bytes is the amount of committed virtual memory, in bytes. Committed memory is the physical memory which has space reserved on the disk paging file(s). There can be one or more paging files on each physical drive. This counter displays the last observed value only; it is not an average.
