Good tools on what to set your virual memory to on XP.

Hm, they recommend setting the script to run as a logoff option - that doesn't sound like a good idea to me. You risk constantly changing pagefile size, and thus getting a fragmented pagefile (bad).

Wth the size of todays harddrives, it's better setting a pessimistic minimum size and make sure the file is defragmented once and for all. And don't set a maximum size; if virtual memory needs to grow, it really needs to grow.

Personally, though, I've disabled the use of pagefiles completely. Works well enough with 2 gigs of ram, for what I do :)

The script only monitors the pagefile usage.
