Solved: Ram+peak+page File

Q: Solved: Ram+peak+page File

Recently the idea of purchasing some more RAM crossed my mind considering how cheap it can be now. After doing some searchin on google, i found mixed feelings towards whether or not you should have more than 1GB of RAM. I also started reading about the Windows Page file. I am running the following system: 3.2GHz P4 with 1GB of RAM. I download alot of torrent files but i am not a hardcore gamer. My question is why does it seem like windows is not using my ram to its full potential. The Peak always shows about 667236, and while i am currently downloading a torrent the page file is at 635MB. Should the page file not only be in use when you need to store more memory than u have RAM? What settings/modifications should I make for optimal performance, and should I get more RAM? I was thinking adding another 512.

At one point i disabled the Page File but Photoshop got mad. Is there anything wrong with disabling the PF, and should u when u have a certain amount of RAM?

Any guidance helpful.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Ram+peak+page File

Windows XP always uses the page file for low priority data regardless of how much physical memory is free. If you still have a lot of physical memory free while you are using as much of it as you ever would, you do not need to upgrade your memory. 1GB of memory is usually more than enough for any normal task. And no, it is not a good idea to disable the page file, as you found out.

I have a custom built computer. Below are specs

ASRock K7s41 Motherboard
512mb Ram
DVD Dual Layer ReWriter
80 GB Hard Drive

I later added a CD-RW and a PEAK ATI Radeon 9800SE 128MB Graphic Card.

The card worked fine on the first day. Later on i notice that the monitor would switch of and i would have no control of the computer. This happened to me many times as i was playing DOOM3. A couple of the times it brought up a message saying something like this:

Your graphics accelerator settings have been reset as they were no longer responding to you commands.

I have had no luck on the peak website.

I just want it fixed because it is really annoying.

Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to look at this post. Anyway, I'll get right to the chase, just recently I have purchased the Motorola SB5120 modem and the Linksys WRT546 router, the reason being is because my old modem was extremely out-dated and we needed an easier way to connect my two other computers. All has been working fine until this past week or so, and it seems that my modem just likes to go into a standby state, by itself, from 11 a.m. until 8-9 p.m. central. This will occur regularly about every 5 minutes to an hour for the entire day, the "standby" mode will last for only about 10 seconds, usually just long enough to kick me off from whatever I may be doing at the time. The modem says its working fine though, and even the Cox guy said it was running at optimal performance. At first I believed it to be just some minor difficulties with the network I setup for my family, but that wasn't the case. I've tried resetting everything and just starting from scratch but nothing works. We called the Cox Support team, again, and again, I was told to reset everything. If anyone has any solutions, please let me know. Thank you.

Dell PC running XP Home.
40 gig hard drive, 2.1 MHz Pentium
768 MHz RAM

THis is a multi-part question.
Here's the problem.
ONE program (UPS WorldShip) hangs when it swaps between windows. It is the furthest computer from the server and is attatched via a hub rather than a switch, and only runs at 10 Mbps. However, switching to a wireless router and network card at 54 Mbps yields the same hanging, and other computers running the same program have no issue accessing the server, so I doubt that it is a network issue.
The page file size is adequate (4096 MB) and it matters not whether other programs are running or not. Could I have a swap file issue, (and where and how do I change that size?) or could it be that I just need more RAM (I wouldn't think that one program would eat all that up)?
Finally, can anyone tell me what processes should always be running in Task Manager? I've got 43 processes on this problematic PC, and I'm sure many of them are extraneous, but I don't want to close or disable a vital process.

Yes, minimum and maximum size is recommended to be the same. Setting a fix size for pagefile prevents it from getting fragmented with time, which is good for performance.

I was under the impression that the page file was used after you ran out of RAM. After booting up just now I ran DXDiag and it said my page file was at 300 MB even though I have 2048MB of RAM. Does this mean my RAM is already full after my PC was only up for two minutes and all I ran was Google Chrome or am I misunderstanding?
 

A:Solved: Help Understanding Page File

It is also used as replacement RAM when you run out of physical RAM, but actually its more common use is a "pitstop" between the several locations the data is moving between. Data is stored in the page file when you're presumed to be needing it in the RAM soon.

I know XP allows you to move the page file to a different drive in system properties. I hear people recommend that often.. never tried it myself.

Personally I wouldn't make the page file too big, after all when the system is using the page file it's paging to disk and that is certainly slower than system memory.

Just fooling around and thought I'd try moving the page file to my E:\ Partition just for the nuts of it. Read the MS KB article and seemed pretty straightforward. Got to the virtual memory change page and set the memory file for the recommended size on the E:\ drive (see screen shot 1). Then went to the C:\ drive and set it for No page file (see screen shot 2). I did click the "Set" button in both cases.

So then I open Defraggler and analyzed the C:\ drive. After defragging a few files was complete, Defraggler shows 1 file could not be defragged. I ran "Analyze" again and sure enough the page file was still there. This is normal for Defragger since the page file is not true file, but reserved space. The only problem is, I thought I changed the location of the page file such that there would be no page file on the C:\ drive. It still take up almost 2GB of space. Not that I'm hurting for space, but I don't understand why it's still there. (see screen shot 3). The page file are the Gold colored cells.

Any thoughts on this condition or explanations for what I'm seeing.

When I call up Task Manager in XP and click on the Performance tab, I see the CPU usage and Page File usage. What exactly is Page File telling me? It is measured in megabytes and remains flat on the graph.

JP
 

A:Solved: Page File usage

Windows uses both actual RAM (Physical Memory) and virtual memory (HDD Paging File) to operate.

It allocates the slower paging file (virtual memory) for lower priority things, such as holding program data in "memory" when you switch tasks.

It always leaves physical RAM with some free, for performance.

The Paging File is pre-allocated a specific size on the HDD (about 1.5 GB in this PC) and it will use what it needs of that at any time - it tends to be fairly static. I am actually using about 550 MB of the 1.5 GB of disk allocated space at present, plus 600 MB of actual physical RAM, out of 1 GB of physical RAM

Hey folks, I hope you can help me on this I'm at my wit's end.

About three days ago, my PC began freezing approx every 3-5 minutes for around 30 seconds, and the HDD activity light on the front of the case goes from occasional flickering to full-on. This occurs almost every time I use the machine, although occasionally the problem goes away after a reboot for a random period of time. I have Spyware Terminator and COMODO Firewall both running real-time protection, I conduct an additional scan every two weeks with SUPERAntiSpyware, and I scan each file I download, regardless of the source, with MalwareBytes, so if it's a trojan or virus it's something pretty vile. I defrag every month.

The only thing I can find out of the ordinary is that under TaskManager, my Commit Charge and Page File Usage figures are identical, and that when the freeze occurs it registers a jump in CPU activity from near-idle to about 30% use.

I'm running XP SP3 on an E5200 @ 2.5Ghz, 2Gb of cheap Corsair brand RAM, GeForce 9600GT, Asus P5Q-SE mobo and the Hard Drive is a Seagate Barracuda ST380215AS 80 GB. I built the machine myself about a year ago, and I take good care of it(weekly "wash" with canned air, latest drivers etc). I've double-checked all the connections inside the case and it all seems solid, airflow is still good.

Is my HDD just failing, or is there something I can do to fix this?

Is having a Swap / Page File necessary anymore? I have been toying around with getting rid of it on Win 7 and have not had any issues so far. Is there any performance boost in getting rid of the paging file and just using the RAM or does that paging file not even kick in until the RAM is all being used? Im usually never doing any crazy multitasking or anything like that so I usually only have 2 or 3 things open at a time. The system has 4GBs of RAM which I don't even think I've come close utilizing all of it. I'm just trying to get your opinions on the matter. Same question applies to Linux, (Specifically Ubuntu) as well, I'm dual booting with no swap on there and no issues either, maybe I just don't push my PC hard enough lol.
 

A:Solved: Swap / Page File...

Personally I would keep the swap unless you are sitting on top of 8 gigs of ram...and then it would just be for benchmarking tests.
Consider the page file as a{ cache.}
With 7 it becomes more of an importance as ram is filled many times from whats in the page file..

When the page file can effect performance negatively would be when it was changing its size.other than that it is a benefit.

Now one can play with different sizes for experiments...as a large page files takes longer to write and to also read.

An example would be something crazy like 50 gig page file...now the hd looks through the page file..doesnt find what it needs and hit the rest of the drive.{time wasted}

A very small page file can be too small and effect performance as data that could be in the page file isnt and then the hd goes to the rest of the drive for the data.{time wasted}

Some apps will cause a problem without a page file...rather than hog memory exclusively they use the page file as cache

A:[SOLVED] Virtual Memory and page file help.

With the amount of RAM you have you should set the minimum size to at least 384MB and the maximum at approximately the value shown in your Total Commit Charge when you have a fair representation of your programs running. You can find this on the Performance Tab in Task Manager. If your Commit Charge is well above 256MB, you really ought to consider getting more RAM as Virtual (Pagefile) memory is slow compared with physical memory and will also increase your hard disc use and therefore wear. Your Pagefile should ideally be on a disc other than the one with your OS.

Old computer. 20GB hard drive (slow, don't know its RPM but slow), and only 380 some megabytes of ram

I read somewhere that disable the page file in some situations can improve the computers speed, cutting down on disk thrashing.. What are your opinions?

A:[SOLVED] Shoud I disable page file?

Disabling the pagefile is almost always a bad idea. There are some unusual situations where this might be be beneficial (I can't think of any just now), but they are quite rare. With 384MB RAM on XP - don't even think about it.

The pagefile is not simply a slow but cheap alternative that is used when RAM runs out. It is used intelligently by the system to actually improve performance. It does this by offloading rarely used data to the pagefile, thus leaving more RAM for more important purposes. Some of this data may not be used for a long time, or not at all. Do you really want your precious RAM being occupied by rarely used data you may not even need again? If you are having excessive disk thrashing now you will have even more without a pagefile.

Don't be deceived by what Task Manager might seem to be telling you. "Available" memory is mostly in use. "PF Usage" is not actual pagefile usage but rather the commit charge. This is a complex topic but has little influence on performance.

A very real risk with disabling the pagefile is exceeding the commit limit. The commit limit is the sum of pagefile size plus most of RAM. If the commit charge ever hits the limit you will have more problems than disk thrashing. Problems such as application failures or even a system crash.

Again, with 384MB RAM disabling the pagefile is BAD.

As per instruction on the link below, I have modified registry to increase page file size.

I have put each 5,000 MB so page file size should be around 15 GB according to me. But when I look at "performance" tab, it shows limit only 3765392 so around 3766 MB.

I checked under settings >> Performance Options of Advance computer properties, there it shows Total Paging Size 2046 MB. But when I click change, there it contains custom size of 5,000 MB.

So finally I just want to know if my paging file size have really increased to 15 GB or it's just 2046 MB as it shown there.

A:want to know my page file size after increasing page file size in registry

I sorted this out myself. After I restarted computer, I could see the new page files created but the total was only 9000 MB though I put each (total 3 page files) 5,000 MB in registry.

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a new computer, and it's an issue I've had with another Windows 7 desktop that I purchased before. Unfortunately, when I fixed it originally, I don't exactly remember how because it was after hours of frustrating trial and error.
Anyways, the issue is that while all volume levels are set for peak output, the green/grey volume bar is only going up about halfway. I have been told to check all settings, check my speakers and reinstall my audio driver; however, none of them have fixed the problem. I have plugged my speakers directly into my iPod and they work fine, and I've tried different music-playing software, and the same issue persists.

If anybody has any ideas on how to fix this problem, it was be appreciated.

The link below is a screenshot...

Hey everyone,

I have been having trouble with my network. I recently, (2 days ago), upgraded my cable high speed internet service from 2mbps down and .2 mbps up to 15 mbps down and 2 mbps up. However, even during non peak hours, pretty much all the time, the best download speed I can get is 4-5mbps. My upload speed stays where it should, at 2mbps. It is really only my download speed I am concerned about, because this happens every day all day. When I first upgraded the service, I got 12-13 mbps download speed, so something must have happened between then and now where I cant receive that anymore. My modem is a doscis 2, not 3, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. It is an Arris TM602G/15 model.But as I said, I have received close to the full download speeds before, but not anymore.

Any help? Thanks!

A:Not getting speeds I am paying for... Even during NON-peak

Try contacted the service provider again ? They should have technicians to be able to check it for you. Could also be a line problem, did you add anymore lines to your cable lines inside ?

How are you testing it, where ? Did you change any other settings on PC. Windows does all optimizations for you.

Try resetting the modem, unplug it for 15 seconds, then plug back in. Or unplug and reboot PC. Usually a way to reset the modem back to factory state, need to check your service providers website for your model modem to be able to access it's settings. Usually you type in an address in your browser to access it.
