Windows NT Server 4.0 may contain a registry entry for PagedMemLimit.


This setting is no longer used in Windows NT 4.0 and is considered a legacy entry. If this entry exists, Windows NT ignores the setting.

However, the value should not be set lower than 1,000 KB. It is especially important that you are well acquainted with memory issues before changing this resource parameter. You cannot change this value from Server Manager. Default: 0x4e20 (20000 in decimal)
