Hi, I'm building a W2k8 x64 server with 16GB of RAM. Now I know the 1.5 - 3x "rule of thumb" for page file size, and Windows has set it to 16 GB by default with a 24 GB recommended size, but a 16 - 24 GB page file just seems wrong to me. Do I really want that much data being paged out to a dog slow spindle? This server will be running MS SQL 2008 as well.
What say yous?
