Pages/Sec Sudden Spike RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I observed strange sudden spike of the Page/Sec value, what should I look at next and what other counters should I collect?

    Would appreciate any advice.

  • I'd run process explorer,

    and identify processes that are using a lot of memory. Since this is
    being reflected in pages/sec, it would seem that one or more processes
    are hitting the paged pool really heavily.

  • A sudden spike could be anything and most likely this is not something to worry about.  IMHO this is not a good counter to monitor because it fluctuates some much.  If you had a base line to compare it against, and could give us actual numbers for the baseline and the "spike" that would help.
