I get low resources/memory messages often.  I am running SW 2009 32bit, system has 4GB of RAM.  Ive know that 32bit Windows cant use the full 4GB, only around 3.2GB.  Under the Performance tab, I thought that if Peak Commit Charge did not go above Total Physcial Memory, then memory usage should be ok.  Thats not the case, since Ive seen low memory messages before it reached that point.  When looking at Task Manager, theres a Mem Usage column and a VM Size column.

 

With my system, at what value of Mem Usage should I expect SW to start giving me low memory messages? 

 

 

FYI, I know we need to move to 64bit systems.  We are currently in the process of specing new systems out.
