Monitoring Windows Server Memory

Updated: 3-9-2017

When Orion Platform products poll a Windows server for CPU load and memory utilization, they pull the amount of physical memory to define the 100% level. Then they total the amount of memory in use by each allocation to compute what percentage of the physical memory is in use. This can result in memory utilization readings over 100%, as many applications pre-allocate memory and swap before it is actually needed.


Add physical memory as a volume for monitoring these servers. When monitored as a volume, the values will be more in line with your expectations.
