How much RAM should the Exchange 2003 store.exe be using?

Hello,

I am running Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003 Standard.  I notice my store.exe is using 1 gig of RAM.  I only have 2 gigs on the server.

Does anyone know if this is normal?   If not, how much RAM should the store.exe be using?


Thanks,

Bill

That sounds normal.  The Exchange store will always grab more memory than it needs.  It will release the memory if its not using it and the system is running low.

You bought that memory to be used didn't you?
As Marc has already said, Exchange will, by design, use as much as it needs, and that often means the vast majority of the available RAM.

Have you made the /3gb change to optimise memory use on this machine?

Concurr with Marc and Sembee...

Generally, in a 2GB server I see between 1.1 and 1.7 GB used total, dependent upon the load.  Of that, approximately 900MB to 1.5GB is used by the Store.exe.  The second largest user of RAM is generally the mail-level anti-virus scanner threads.

Cheers,

Bob
