Paging on Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2008-10-24
I have bought a new Server ( HP Proliant DL 380 G5, 4 GB Memory, Dual Processor). Have 2 Raids ( RAID 10 on 2 HD for OS & RAID 5 on 4 HD for Data) . I have Windows 2000 SP 4 installed. The Server would function as QAS Server for SAP. My coworker (SAP Basis) wants to do PAGING (increase) for each Partition ( We have C Drive is :, D, E, F & G...C Drive is the bootable Drive) My argument is since there is RAID going on (Data being distributed through out the HD) and We have good enough Memory. It should be avoided. However, My knowledge about Paging is not that much nor is his.. Can you please tell us the pros and cons of PAGING and Do we need to use it for our scenario? I appreciate your help..
