high page file usage on server 2003 64bit

Hi
I have a domain controller running Windows server 2003 64 bit with 8GB Ram installed.
It is also running Exchange 2007.
My question is about the page file usage - it is constantly at around 8GB - is that normal?
I dont seem to have any performance issues but just want to know if there is a problem i should be aware of?
Many thanks.
Andy

It is normal. Windows needs the pagefile and performance is much better no matter how much RAM you have. Windows will also always use it. It puts seldom or no-more used data in there, that free's up the RAM so it can be used more efficiently.

Refer below article for for query.

A page file is created that is one and a half times the amount of RAM that is installed in the computer provided there is sufficient free space on the system hard disk. However, as more RAM is added to a computer, the need for a page file decreases. If you have enough RAM installed in your computer, you may not require a page file at all, unless one is required by a specific application.
