I assume that over 95% of your swap space is in use.

Hi,

What is Swap Memory ?

Swap Memory, also called as Virtual Memory, is a memory management capability of an OS that uses hardware and software to allow a server to compensate for physical memory shortages by temporarily transferring data from RAM to disk storage.

In your case, data swapped by your servers from RAM to disk is 95%. This might be due to RAM shortages. 

For any further clarification, please post in the below thread or contact support@site24x7.com

Very interesting post. We have this also in a HyperV Environment. Some servers address 40% swap memory utilization. How to solve this issue? Is this a hardware issue or a configuration issue?

Hi,

How to determine the appropriate page file size for 64-bit versions of Windows?

please refer this article from Microsoft for that. 


How to change the page file size?

  1. Open System Properties. Right-click the Start button, select Control Panel > System and then click Change Settings.
  2. In the System Properties dialog box, in the Advanced tab, click Settings button in Performance.
  3. In the Performance Options dialog box, in the Advanced tab, click Change button in the Virtual Memory.
  4. In the Virtual Memory dialog box, jot down the minimum allowed, recommended, and currently allocated paging file sizes in the last section. Then, uncheck the box that says Automatically manage paging file size for all drives. If more than one drive appears in the available drives list, click on your system drive, which is the one you installed Windows on -- usually C:
  5. Click Custom Size, and then type values into the Initial Size (MB) and Maximum Size (MB) depending on the amount of RAM you installed.

Hope this helps. Let us know for further queries, if any, in the below thread.

 

Regards,

Hisham
