SW loosing performance... Why?

We have noticed that every time that the application loose performance (like when you open simultaneously two main assemblies not related to each other), the system cache of the computer get to a very low figure (120000 to 150000K).

The machine has 16GB of physical RAM and a 48GB page file placed on a dedicated RAPTOR DH. Even if we dissable the Page File and work only with physical RAM this happen.

SW is the only application working on the machine when this happen and when the machine works with any other application the system cache allways is over 1500000 K.

The OS is Windows x64.

Do some one have any idea of why this happen? On this machine only when the system cache go to a low figure is when SW loose all the performance. When this happen even to close and assembly after saving takes over 4 minutes. Then when you close SW and the application release the memory the system cache go up to normal level.

Apparently all the problem with the performance, crashes, etc. is do to the way SW manages the memory (better said the way the way SW do not manage the memory resources).

Any similar experience? Any solution? do some one have tried any memory management utility on x64?
