Since we installed SP1 to some of our Win 2008r2 Servers we have been getting alerts from SCOM. Alert: Percentage of Committed Memory in Use is too high
Source: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
These have increased alot since the Sp1 install. Has anyone else had this issue or know why it is occuring?

Try these steps:

1) Try raising the pagefile size. If you look at recommended setting and you're way below that it might be a problem. If you can spare the space, set it to system managed. See if the alert stops occurring.

2) Several Microsoft products including Exchange, SQL Server, and the Operations Manager ROM will use all available memory. This is especially noticeable on 64-bit platforms where memory can scale-out more effectively for the applications.

Resolution: Configured the server to have a 95% threshold instead of 80%. To do it:

1)    Navigate to authoring pane -> Management Pack Objects -> Monitors.
2)    Find the monitor at "Windows Server 2003 Operating System"  -> Entity Health ->Performance -> "Percentage of committed Memory in Use"
3)    Right click it and select “Overrides” -> "Override the monitor" -> "For all objects of type: Windows Server 2003 Operating System".
4)    Specify the threshold value 95% instead 80% and click to apply.
