    page faults

    Hello all,

    ive had complaints today of a slow terminal server I checked in performance and page faults are varying between 35 and hundred but mostly staying around 60-70

    I thought it maybe the virtual memory, at the moment the server has 4 GB and a page file of 4096.

    It says recommended page file of 5374mb

    Anyone any ideas how to stop the page faults??

    Re: page faults

    You can't stop page faults - it's how Windows gets stuff into memory which isn't already there! The numbers don't sound bad, though. http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true has details of what the counter really means but on a terminal server it's likely that you are going to have lots of page faults - lots of users doing different things means you can't keep everything in RAM so it has to be fetched from disk.

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro....mspx?mfr=true is a section on investigating memory problems. It's written for Windows 2000 but I think the principles stay the same for 2003.
