Hi

I have installed MemInfo on my WindowsXP SP3 and I think the display of the pagefile is incorrect.

I have set the pagefile on my system to 1.500gb "fixed" but Meminfo display a size of 3.xxx gb...take a look on the picture.

Hi Manamana,

I will do some tests regarding fixed page files.
Never had any complaint regarding this issue.

I'll let you know how it went

thanks,

Hi,

Can you provide a Screenshot showing MemInfo (with the tooltip) and the perfomance tab of Task Manager?

Thanks,

Hi,

The total Page file MemInfo displays on the tooltip is given by Windows.

I recommend checking with Microsoft documentation on pagefile.

Not sure if you are into computer programming, but for your reference,
MemInfo uses the function GlobalMemoryStatusEx to retrieve the Memory\PageFile values

Thanks,

My setup:
Fixed page file of 4085MB.
pagefile.sys appeas to be 3.98GB (4,183,496KB) on disc.
16GB of RAM

MemInfo currently showing PageFile of 6.45GB of 19.84GB (Physical mem of 4.96GB of 15.86GB) and system not really needing to use swap/page. Resource monitor not showing any writes to pagefile.sys.
Something's not right here...
