Page File Size

Hi,

I have been advised by our implementation partners to set a page file size 3X the physical RAM. Our physical RAM is a whopping 8GB. So we are advised to set the page file to 24GB... Can this be? Should this be?

thanks,

Jason

    Hi,

    In the SAP world, 8 GB RAM is a medium size.

    24 GB of page file is a minimum. I would go for 30 GB.

    Nowadays disk space is cheap !

    On our windows 2003 64 bit itanium servers for SAP R/3, we have 16 GB RAM.

    Regards,

    Olivier

      Hi Jason,

      When ever your sys. run out(completely used ) of Memory , it will swap leat, last used part to disk to make memory avilable for the next file. For example if you keep on openning some files on your desk top , it will say not enough memory(ok on desk tops it's managed automatically). To avoid same situation on Server's we manage manually and 3 or 4 Gb is all based on experience

      only it's derived.

      Hope this help you,

      Hari.
