Page File/OS Partition Size for Win 2008 R2 Server


  • I am setting up a new Win Server 2008 R2 server to be a SQL 2008 R2 server. I have 32GB RAM and 2 RAID arrays: 2x73GB RAID 1 and 3x146GB RAID 5.

    How big of a page file should I plan for? If possible I had wanted to divide the first array into a C drive for the OS and paging file and an E drive for the log files. I need at least 20 GB for the logs. The SQL DB itself is 37GB.
