Troubleshooting server performance on a Exchange Server 2010

Hi there,

The server is Windows 2008 R2 running Exchange 2010.
We only have a handful of mailboxes. Journaling was enabled on the server in the past.

Simple tasks like opening computer management console, EMC, etc takes around 5-8 to open with few crashes in between.

OWA performance is also slow but workable.

I've found an error related to the mailbox store.

Can you please advise if this is a software related issue and/or hardware and the best way to approach?


Thanks.

Hello,

You don't have enough RAM. I would increase it to 12GB.

Your CPU is working too hard and this could be due to memory shortage.
Increase your memory to 12GB as advised (minimum 8GB) and check the performance monitor again.

Rule of thumb.
Keep processes below 70% usage for normal operation.
