Enabling ECS virtual memory will deteriorate disk I/O performance. Therefore, the Windows ECSs provided by the platform do not have virtual memory enabled by default. If the memory size of an ECS is insufficient, you are advised to increase its memory size by modifying the ECS specifications. Perform the operations described in this section to enable virtual memory if required.
If the memory usage is excessively high and the I/O performance is not as good as expected, you are not suggested to enable virtual memory. The reason is as follows: The excessively high memory usage limits the system performance improvement. Furthermore, frequent memory switching requires massive additional I/O operations, which will further deteriorate the I/O performance and the overall system performance.
The operations described in this section are provided for the ECSs running Windows Server 2008 or later.
The System Properties dialog box is displayed.
The Performance Options dialog box is displayed.
The Virtual Memory dialog box is displayed.
You are advised not to select the system disk to store the virtual memory.
Considering Memory.dmp caused by blue screen of death (BSOD), you are advised to set Initial size to 16 and Maximum size to 4096.
