The rule of thumb used to be that page file (both minimum and maximum to minimize fragmentation) should be twice the size of actual RAM.
These days, with servers routinely having 2 or more gigs of RAM, I find this size of a page file to be excessive.
I typically cap page file size at 1024MB regardless of physical RAM nowadays, however, I just saw a knowledgebase article on Veritas website that suggests that the page file should still be twice RAM.
Am I wrong in thinking that this is ridiculous and that your server will be on it's knees crawling long before it ever gets close to using that much pagefile?
If I am wrong and there are good documented reasons why pagefiles should still be double size of RAM, let me know.
