My system has 16GB of RAM and a max pagefile of 1000MB.
The standby memory cache stays around 7GB even when my commit limit is reached causing either a low memory warning or a program which crashes because it couldn't allocate memory.
I understand that free memory = wasted memory so have no problem that standby uses 7GB normally, but why isn't it releasing the memory when it is needed?
I know the pagefile is small, but it is for two reasons - limited SSD space and a windows controlled pagefile was causing performance issues from swapping too often.
Any help would be appreciated.
