Move Page file from C to D
Posted on 2013-11-12
I have been told that our terminal server operating at 98% RAM usage with 4 of 79 GB space remaining is not optimal for server 2008 R2, and, that what appears to be happening is that instead of storing data temp on disk, its being cached in RAM.
Initially I had considered addressing this issue, but was told that Windows R2 operates that way placing as much data into RAM as it sees fit. We have about 64+ Users working off of this server daily, with that in mind, I think I would go against extending the C Partition space, and subtract from D (seeing as it could be a bit risky).
I've ran Windirstat and was considering moving the 32 GB page file from C to D. Only leaving 2 GB on C. Will this be an OK idea? Will this limit performance (which is much needed), seeing as it serves site to site, with about 64+ users onboard? How would this affect software ran from the C Partition?
Users remote into this server to work from a EHR software daily.
This is not a VM
