5:05am disk activity warning in the Event log of a SBS 2003 Server...
Posted on 2007-08-03
Every morning at 5:05am I get this in the Event log of a SBS 2003 Server: Does anyone know what can be causing this?
The following disk has low idle time, which may cause slow response time when reading or writing files to the disk.
Disk: 0 C:
Review the Disk Transfers/sec and % Idle Time counters for the PhysicalDisk performance object. If the Disk Transfers/sec counter is consistently below 150 while the % Idle Time counter remains very low (close to 0), there may be a problem with the disk driver or hardware.
If the review shows that the disk is functioning properly, use Task Manager to determine which processes are causing the majority of the disk activity. You can attempt to correct the problem by stopping and then restarting those processes.
You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad."
I've seen the post re adding the "/3GB /USERVA=3030" to the boot.ini... but am a little worried about doing so. Would appreciate some insight from anyone that's seen this before.
