    hey not sure if i should have posted this in the client forum, apologies if that is the case!!Sitting 70-290 exam on monday n jus want clarification on monitoring memory performance!
    Scenario:

    My XP client that is connected to my 2003 domain is operating quite slowly. Stats are as follows:

    Physical RAM: 256MB
    Page File Size: 413MB

    On task manager:

    Commited (K)
    Peak 766,500 K (does this equate to approx. 750MB? Unfortunately my maths skills are somewhat limited and could very well have got this wrong!!)

    My understanding is that this machine badly needs more memory but could do with someonelses opinion on this please. Is it true that if your peak commited value is greater than your physical memory then this signals lack of memory?As i mentioned before my maths is bad so need to know if i have calculated this wrong!! I am expecting questions in my exam on monitoring so would like to clear this up

    Any help greatly appreciated :)

    Try increasing the size of the page file and see if that helps. If not, go out and by another stick of RAM.
