I am watching some of our servers and I am starting to notice an odd trend. Ok maybe not a trend, but a memory overload, I guess you would call it. We have some servers that have 512 RAM with 1 CPU of a XEON Dual Core 3.6 Gig with Pages/Second averaging 46 pages with a max of about 976. Then we have other servers that have 4 gig RAM with dual CPUs of a XEON quad core 2.0 Gig with Pages/Second averaging about 920ish and maxing at about 3833. These servers are just the extreme ends. We have multiple locations. I have alarms set up to email when memory gets to high. I have been getting alot of those lately. The functions for each server is almost identical at each location. There is no sql on any server or exchange or anything like that. The software they run is unfortunately AVG and Counterspy. For the rest of it, they are generally just file servers. The emails I received are based on a formula I found that states that the pages per second should be set in range of 50% to 70% or the RAM installed in the server. The trend I am seeing is that the more RAM I have in a server, the more pages/second happen and consequently the more emails I get that say there is a problem. Now that the background is in place. The main question is this. In relation to the RAM installed at what level of pages/second should I become concerned? This whole thing started when a drive failed due to high disk thrashing on a low memory and low cpu server that was the only server at a critical location. The reason behind why we were lax at upgrading that server was that it is a sight that could not be down. And we PAID for that decision.
