Allocated Memory Alert on SERVER email notifications on SBS 2003
Posted on 2010-03-26
We are running SBS 2003 w/ service pack 2 in our server. About a month ago I increased the RAM from 1gig to 2gig. Since then I have been receiving email alerts that state the following:
Allocated Memory Alert on SERVER
Alert on SERVER at 3/24/2010 11:40:58 PM
A large amount of memory is committed to applications and processes. Consistently high memory usage can cause performance problems.
To determine which processes and applications are using the most memory, use Task Manager. Monitor the activity of these resources over a few days. If they continue to use a high level of memory and are less critical processes or services, try stopping and then restarting them.
You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.
I opened Task Manager and found the following large memory users:
Commit Charge 2349M/3944M
Does anyone have any ideas on what is causing this, and better yet, how to fix it?
