Exchange Page Zeroing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I've read about Page Zeroing for Exchange @ https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg549096(v=exchg.150).aspx

    Page Zeroing records a certain fixed pattern during runtime scan (R for Replace, H for Freed Page Space etc)

    I'm performing some sort of testing in my development environment and would like to know:

    1) Can i turn off page zeroing? I think i can disable it during Background Maint Window by completely disabling ESE Scanning on a database but not sure how to do it for runtime.

    2) In my application, i would like to record all the status codes of zeroing, where can i read this information?

    3) Can i disable it on Passive copies? or can i delay it for a day maybe by using some registry tweaks?

    Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks..

  • Hi,

    1) Can i turn off page zeroing? I think i can disable it during Background Maint Window by completely disabling ESE Scanning on a database but not sure how to do it for runtime.

    As mentioned in that document, it's enabled by default, and it cannot be disabled.

    2) In my application, i would like to record all the status codes of zeroing, where can i read this information?

    Refer to 'Monitoring Page Zeroing Behavior' section in that document. Besides this, no other built-in method can monitor it based on my knowledge.

    3) Can i disable it on Passive copies? or can i delay it for a day maybe by using some registry tweaks?

    We can't disable it any where, and the passive copies never had its pages zeroed. I searched around and don't found any way to delay it.

    Best Regards.
