The first step in investigating a memory problem is to measure paging. Although soft page faults (in which pages not in the process’s working set are found elsewhere in physical memory) interrupt the processor, their effect is likely to be negligible.

If you suspect a memory shortage, chart the following Performance Monitor counters:

  • Memory: Page Faults/sec
  • Memory: Pages Input/sec
  • Memory: Page Reads/sec
