Pagefile size on 200R2 Vm

Last Modified: 2016-03-30
Hi all,

I have a 2008 R2 SQL server (vmware Vm 5.1) that I have allocated 26 GB of RAM to. Ive noticed that the server is now consuming 27GB of disk for the pagefile.

Is there a real need, considering its a VM, to have the pagefile grow to the same as the allocated RAM?
