High RAM usange on SBS2008 cause network drops?
Posted on 2010-11-18
I have searched for answers, but find inconclusive/ambiguous answers on this:
I have an SBS2008 SP2 server with 8Gb RAM running SQL Server 2008. The RAM usage stays high (around 93%). There are a few applications having general errors, and the event logs on the clients indicate a loss of network connectivity (file becomes unavailable). The users don't notice any disconnect, and they can rerun the program with no problem. But the errors and event log messages are consistent with a file (typically an EXE or DLL) becoming temporarily unavailable. On one workstation, it seems to after being minimized for while, and then bringing it back into focus.
Resource Monitor shows around 100 hard faults/sec.
Can the RAM bumping up against the top cause a momentary network connection drop? Any other ideas what might? I think I'm going to swap the network switch, even though there aren't any obvious manifestations of network problems. (Owner's computer: gotta do something!)
Thanks for any help provided.
