Checking memory usage

HI

I have a Windows 2008 Server, 64bit, with 4GB RAM. I want to ensure that we don't need anymore so I was thinking of using some sort of Perfmon counter so that I could view if free memory was ever that low.

Could someone expand on the best way to do this?

On a longer term note, is there some sort of SCOM alert that could generate an email when free memory was running low?

you can configure a performance counter data collector set for specified value & configure alert type to start a task. Task may be a script to send email

You can consider only the memory section:



Object\Counter      Preferred or Ideal Value

Memory\Pages/sec         0–20. (Unhealthy if greater than 80; probably indicates not enough RAM.)

Memory\Available Bytes       10% of physical memory.

Memory\Committed Bytes         No more than 75 percent of physical memory.

Memory\Pool Nonpaged Bytes       A steady value. (A slow rise might indicate a memory leak.)
