Are you saying you saw an event message that said the Virtual memory is
fragmented? The page file should be on a separate partition all its own and
set to a static size.


You have plenty of hardware (sort of) but how are the partitions?


Have your reviewed the logs?


Have you reviewed the message tracking?


Have you turned up event logging on the IS?

Subject: [exchangelist] Messages Stuck in Local Queue of Exchange 2000

Dear All,

              We have Dell PowerEdge 2850 Server with dual 3.0 GHz Xeon
Processors and 3 GB (400 MHz) RAM. Our server processes 50 thousand emails
daily (of which 30,000 are local). This machine is configured with Raid 5 (4
X 72 GB SCSI 10 K rpm). This machine has windows 2000 advanced server with
Exchange 2000 Enterprise installed. We have applied famous 3 GB switch in
boot.ini file. This machine has 36 GB of its Exchange Database size (.edb
and .stm files). 


The problem with this machine is that normally it processes emails at very
high speed but at some time (once in 24 hours) messages stuck in its local
queue. After that messages in local queue keeps on increasing. This problem
gets resolved when we restart Information Store service. Sometimes we have
to restart whole machine as well. Mostly we have observed that if we restart
this machine once in 24 hours, this performs well. We have checked its event
viewer but didn't found anything unusual.

There are no such events in event viewer some thing like that " Virtual
memory necessary to run Exchange services is defragmented in  such a way
that now you need to restart your services, etc.".  


If any body help me, it will be so good. 

Thanks and Regards in advance,



Muhammed Ilyas
