When SolarWinds UDT polls a Windows server for CPU load and memory utilization, it pulls the amount of physical memory to define the 100% level, and then it totals 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. To work around this, you can also add physical memory as a volume for these servers within Orion Platform. When monitored as a volume, the values will be more in line with your expectations.
