My client has a Server SBS 2011 with remote monitoring software (GFI Max).  I am barraged by 2 notifications related to performance from the monitoring software.  The first is: The test Performance Monitoring Check - Memory Usage failed.  The additional data associated with the notification are pages/sec exceedance values ranging from 20 to 450.  The second notification is: The test Performance Monitoring Check - Physical Disk: Total failed.  Yikes "total failed"!!!   The associated data lists Read Queue exceedance values ranging from 8  to 19.1.

I am running exchange on this server.  

My questions is what are acceptable values for these performance measures and what should I be concerned about.

Thanks for all your help.

Hope that helps.

Note with SBS sql can be causing your issue if performance counters are not working correctly.
