We have a new SQL 2005 running on a MS 2003 server. There is 8 Gigs of physical RAM in the box and I have a dedicated drive for the pagefile. My question is what should I set the pagefile at for "Initial Size" and "Maximum Size"? I've read before that setting both at RAM + (RAM * 1.5) would keep the pagefile from becoming fragmented. Also are there other requirements that I should take into account for SQL? If my thoughts are correct I should set the Initial size at around 12 Gigs and set the maximum at around 16 Gigs? The drive dedicated for the pagefile is 80 Gigs so that shouldn't be a problem.
