Pagefile grows too big

Hi,

We encounter the problem that the pagefile of the SBS 2003 server grows to ca. 6-7 GB.

The server runs the standard SBS services, Exchange, AD, DHCP, DNS and so on...

Stopping and removing services doen't do much, has anybody any idea why this is happening?

We installed the following hotfixes:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974509
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976947
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975830

This helps nothing, the server is fully updated, the server is a HP ML350 G5. It looks like this happened after we upgraded the PSP, we rolled backup the updates.

I've added a screenshot of the running services.

Any help would be appreciated!!


Kind regards,

Joost

Looks you have virus or spamware is trying to send spam from your exchange.

Use process esplorer to check the detail info of each process. I attached the program already.

A growing pagefile is a good indicator of a memory leak. Task Manager can be useful in locating the problem but without the column headings your screenshot doesn't mean very much.

Check the page file size set on the server.

The page file had to be set to 9GB, otherwise the services won't start.

Normally the setting was 4GB, and this has workes for years.
