What is the best setting for configuring virtual memory under Windows Xp Service Pack 2
Posted on 2007-12-07
I have just upgraded all of our workstations running XP with new ram modules (replacing the old ones)
All workstations now have 1024MB of DDR-RAM (or DDR2-RAM). All motherboards use Dual Memory channels (so installed the new modules in pairs of 2 x 512MB)
Under virtual memory settings, the VM size seems to be linked to size of available ram,the installed memory was 256MB Ram, the settings were :
Minimum size : 768MB
Maximum size : 1024MB
So that is a value of 3X Ram size for minimum value, and 4x Ram size for maximum value.
Should i just recalculate those numbers (3X and 4x available memory) or leave the control up to windows itself ?
