When other services needed the ram the information store would start to queue messages. (both incoming and sending) If the other process was active for any period of time, the queue length would get rather high. When we upgraded the ram to the 3gig, the information store still obtains the 980mb, however there is now enough memory available for all other requests. At a later time I might up the amount of virtual memory the system is using, this should allow exchange to consume more ram, and might boost performance. However right now, I'm not having any of those issues, so I'm all for smooth sailing. Currently total memory usage for the system is 1438mb, leaving me with over half available.
