I need to know the best way to change the Virtual Memory on this server:
I'm working on a server that is experiencing High CPU utilization. Original config 2003 Server, SP2 Enterprise Edition. On a ESX 3.5 vsphere 4.1/Vcenter. This server is hosting a FoxPro Database. Two Hard Drives are one C: 20GB and E: 20GB. 8GB of Ram. After doing some trouble shooting I noticed while checking the recommended settings for this problem the following: Virtual Memory allocation is set to C: Initial MB size is 2092 and Max MB size is 3092 and the E: drive is set to Initial 4092 and Max is 4092.
I just expanded the c: to 40GB being that it only had 2GB of free space; and now has 20GB of free space. Attached is a screenshot of the settings.
New config on Clone of production machine: Now that I have plenty of space on the C: should I now set the Virtual Memory to 1.5 times the physical (VMram) which is 6GB now; and match the initial size with the Max size as recommended for clustered machines and database servers?
