On Windows Server 2003 64 bit with 32 GB of RAMThe message may be a false alarm - even checking task manager on Windows 2003 may be misleading. On Windows 2003, the "PF Usage" statistic in task manager is not page file usage, but instead total virtual memory usage, which includes RAM and page file. Oracle Enterprise Manager, I believe, is showing the "PF Usage" statistic, and is making the assumption that this is page file usage.
running oracle 10g (10.2.0.3)
We are trying to do some load testing and with what
would be considered a starting point minimum load of
150 users the system bogs down and OEM reports:
'Significant virtual memory paging was detected on
the host operating system " so we go to SA and he
tells us that he sees Oracle process only using 4GB
of memory and with all other process only 12GB of RAM
being actually used.
I know, USE UNIX...but this is for a customer with
Any Windows guru's out there with idea?
