Help - Too Much I/O On XP Sp2

NetMeeting Remote Desktop Sharing does not, but it regularly has to be manually restarted at the console, so is less than ideal for our needs. If this demand continues to grow, the cache manager can grow to consume physical memory and other process (with less memory demand) will get paged out to disk.

A PC can run perfectly for years then start to misbehave for no obvious reason, perhaps because numerous files have been upgraded in the background. It would be great if we could load up all the contents of the hard drive into RAM, but that scenario is cost prohibitive and dangerous. Tommie Wiesner says: October 10, 2008 at 22:26 We have a similiar problem on our server running ACCPAC. We have delays of 3-6 minutes just to log into the server, open new programs, and our database type programs are totally unusable during these times. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/help-too-much-i-o-on-xp-sp2.755761/

This read I/O demand may be legitimate or may be due to poor application scalability. After copying a file like this, the system is so slow to do anything else. My Windows 2003 terminal server (5 clients, but only 2-3 logged on simultaneously) is constantly trashing the disk and incredibly slow, even though only a few users are logged in via Pingback: The Shed of Cigars, Scotch, Guns, and BS - Page 101 felix says: June 19, 2012 at 16:50 Just FYI: worked for me too, THANKS 🙂 Pingback: Prozess csrss.exe verursacht

Is there anyone that maybe has a resolution to this problem yet? On 32 bit systems, you are limited to 2 GB of Kernel address space.

They are also like available memory because they can be quickly zeroed and given to another process. It may use quite a bit of physical RAM, but not at the expense of other processes and it shouldn't completely deplete available memory. You should not use these tools on the latest version of Windows. ] However I am experiencing the MetaFile utilizing over 90% of my RAM on Windows Server 2008 R2 w/ Most of what you see as available pages is probably standby pages for the system cache.

This means you can tell whether the program started up with your PC (in the example above, AnVir started when I rebooted XP on 28 February) or was run later. First get the current File System Cache’s working set size, then set the limit to something fairly low (but not too low).

But does the SetSystemFileCacheSize() work on Vista SP1? I can't really say if this is the cause of our performance problems (with Subversion), but I am concerned. It doesn't actually seem to be causing a problem, it's just out of the ordinary. We chose to implement this tuning option via API calls to allow setting the cache working set size dynamically.

People should read Mark's well written description of the efforts expended by Microsoft in improving the cache system. Unless you have many individual files open, the cache manager should not encounter the scenario described in this article on R2.

I would recommend using SetSystemFileCacheSize() over NtSetSystemInformation() because SetSystemFileCacheSize() is a public API. If so then using the APIs won't affect your process' working set.

Is there a way to make the setting permanent or do we have to resolve to running the tool during the Windows startup sequence? [Good question. Before taking drastic measures, you need to verify that you do have a caching problem and not a disk I/O bandwidth problem. ] I am using Vista Ultimate 64-bit on a CNET Reviews Best Products Appliances Audio Cameras Cars Networking Desktops Drones Headphones Laptops Phones Printers Software Smart Home Tablets TVs Virtual Reality Wearable Tech Web Hosting Forums News Apple Computers Many of the processes running in XP should be obvious from their names, such as iexplore.exe and winword.exe, but you may have to run a web search to identify others.

For pre-Windows 7 operating systems, you need to use the provided APIs. If you are moving a lot of pages through the cache, chances are that your standby list will be mostly full of cached pages. Several functions may not work. The file system cache operates like a process working set.

This does bring up a point about the new flash drives coming out the spec is access will be less than 1 microsecond, and typically at the slower end of RAM,

Good job and thanks to all ! I've had the computer up for about 15 minutes this morning, and there have already been 15,000 writes. Hoping for a hotfix from Microsoft RSN. Task Manager combines standby pages and the system file cache’s working set together and reports it as Cached Pages.
