Windows server 2003 - Page file usage

By mdabusamar ·
I'm currently monitoring the situation but suspect that this is the cause of the server eventually becoming inaccesible to remote users.

i have a server running window server 2003. it has been hanging frequently a day. because i found its a performance issue, ercently have been monitoring the page file size ever the past 24 hrs it has increased from 600MB to 1.20GB (every day we are restart the system)

plz give this solution as soon as possible,

How much system RAM do you have?

The recommended fixed page file size is 1.5 times system RAM so a 600MB page file is TINY as it implies 400MB of RAM which is absurd for a W2K3 server although, to be fair, it is above the recommended minimum of 256MB.

Not Enough Information

what else is running on the server (ie AD, DHCP, DNS, ISS, TS)? also how much RAM is installed and how big is the total available size of the pagefile.

There is not enough information here to have a idea where or what the issue is.

Servers if configured correctly shouldn't have a reason to be restarted on a daily bases
