What's Acceptable Memory Pages Per Second for Server 2008?

With Server 2003, XP, etc the typical threshold for memory pages per second is 20. However, while monitoring a couple Small Business Server 2008 machines I've noticed this value continually jumps to about 46.

Should this be a cause for concern? As Server 2008 is a memory hog as it is, what's the expected and accepted threshold?

  As mentioned above, it depends.  If response is acceptable to the users then it's not a problem.  It may be something to monitor to see if it's trending upwards and may become a problem.

   Generally spikes on any counter aren't cause for concern.  In this case you say "continually".  What time interval is continually?  If it's once a minute, or 30 seconds, I wouldn't be concerned.  If it's once a second I might be and probably would investigate.  If it spiked once every 5 seconds I may or may not look at it depending on how busy I was or how important the server was.
