Server Performance Enhancement: Fine-tuning

Jan 1, 2008 12:00 AM

Here are a few more quick tips to jazz up a file server: Note: The following actions require making changes to the Windows registry and should only be done by trained personnel.

Keep the executables (programs and dependencies) in RAM and from being swapped out to the page file by changing the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management and change the key named Disable Paging Executive from 0 to 1.

Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management and modify/create a Reg_Dword named Clear Page File At Shutdown, and set the value to 1. This will delete the pagefile when the server is shutdown and create a new one upon startup. This will ensure no page file fragmentation.
