In the eManufacturing System Administration Guide for Windows NT
networks, under 'System Maintenance: Performance Tuning - System' it
tells specifically what information in NT Performance Monitor to
check. Under 'Interpreting the Data:', I compared Logical Disk:
Disk Queue Length & % Disk Time; Memory: Available Bytes &
Pages/second; and Processor: % Processor Time. All appear to be
reasonable according to the guidelines listed except 'Pages/sec'.
The first time I ran it for 1 minute, Pages/Sec = 40.447. The second
time I ran it for 15 minutes, Pages/Sec = 68.41. The guidelines
say "This parameter monitors the number of pages being written
between physical memory and the paging file. This number should be
below 20." Any suggestions on if this should be a concern or how to
fix? This is on a Compaq 6000, 500 MHz, 512 mb RAM, dual processor,
Smart Array Controller, RAID 10, NT4. Vantage: 5.00.329, 2.5 GB, 50
user. The hard drive is approx. 15GB, with only 2GB remaining. Task
manager shows CPU usage average under 10% with occasional spikes to
approx 80%, MEM usage average 40%. I appreciate all input on or off-
line. Thanks! Ann Harrell, AMFAB
With the memory usage at 40% of the 512 total, does that mean you have a
really small -B parameter?
What is you -B and you blocksize?
