The frament memory error usually occurs if you have more than 2.5gb of
memory in your Exchange server.

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

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
