If you're not using System Managed (which I don't like), you will generally set the pagefile to 1.5x RAM.

Like Lee said, This is the Maximum, but you can always set limit to page file for yourself.

Page file is growing depend of application design and memory information traffic.

I have SQL server with 32GB RAM and it's using 30GB RAM but only 7GB page file.

Everything is dependable.

If you don;t want your pagefile grow you can limit it in system properties.

If I remember correctly, RAM+10 is the minimum for a crash dump file to be generated - and that has to be on the C: drive.  Otherwise, it doesn't HAVE to be RAM or RAM + 10.  The guideline is generally RAM x1.5 as I stated earlier.  There can be instances where you want more or less.  You don't want SQL or Exchange using pagefiles - they need FAST RAM, not slow pagefiles.  Give them sufficient RAM!

Is it set to be System Managed or User Managed?  Is there a pagefile on more than one drive?

Generally, I wouldn't be worried about systems with Pagefiles set to RAM... I personally *IF I NOTICED IT* would likely increase it to 1.5x RAM.

What's the fascination with the pagefile and related settings?  Are you having problems you think are related?
