My client has an HP xw6000 workstation pc. It currently has 1 gig of memory. It’s responsiveness slows down when 5 applications are opened. I’m trying to determine if more memory would help.
The pc is running Windows XP Pro. Task manager (when all 5 applications are running) shows CPU usage at 24% and Commit charge of 964058 and Physical memory at 1048076.
Q1.) So, could this pc benefit from more memory?
Q2.) How can I measure the swap rate to determine if the computer is swapping programs in and out of memory at an excessive rate?
