services.exe using over 500MB of memory (Windows Server 2008 R2) RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I manage many servers and just in the last 2 days I've come across two servers that were using more memory than usual, and found it to be due to the services.exe process using over 500MB of memory, which is very odd.

    I have researched this and found this other thread with a possible solution, but the advice is based on Windows Server 2003/XP:


    So far however a reboot has resolved the issue (on the first server I found with this issue), so I don't know if the issue will resurface.  I'll probably reboot this 2nd server as well,  but was wondering if anyone has any information on this.
