Exchange 2007 is using too much memory.
Posted on 2007-10-06
I am running Exchange 2007 on a test server and it is using too much virtual memory.
The box has 2GB of memory and when I startup Task Manager I see that 3.02 GB of Memory is being used over all. This is the only application running on a Windows 2003 x64 box. And there is only one mailbox on it being used very lightly. I'm trying to figure out a way to limit the amout of memory exchange is using.
Here is what I see under the Processes Tab in Task Manager:
SMSUtilityService.exe *32= 148,000kb
There are a whole lot more processes. When I add them all up I only get about 1.7GB of memory being used. So I'm not sure where the rest is going. Or maybe it has to do with the page file as there only is 2GB of physical memory.
Anyway I feel with only one mailbox I should be able to limit the memory without problems
