    Process\Page File Bytes

    The current amount of virtual memory, in bytes, that this process has reserved for use in the paging files.


    Process\Page File Bytes Peak

    The maximum amount of virtual memory, in bytes, that this process has reserved for use in the paging files.

  • Hello,


    It seems to be a known issue on Windows Server 2008. Refer to this KB:

  • Thank you Cheers.

    So I should use Process _total to monitor performance.

    Could you please kindly give me an explanation for below lines.

    Page File bytes

    Page File bytes peak

    working set

    What do these counters means? What about the page file usage percent?
