|Concepts to understand:|
What may cause a low memory condition?
What is a paging operation?
I have received this event on a heavy loaded Exchange 2003 machine with AV installed, at peak hour. My advice is to install more memory and faster disks.
As per Microsoft: "The disk driver has delayed nonpaging requests so that paging requests can complete quicker. Possible causes include:
- The system is running low on memory.
- There is a lot of disk I/O activity". See MSW2KDB for more details.
From a newsgroup post: "When a memory allocation request comes down and there, are not enough pages available to service the request, Mm puts the requester on hold for a certain period, and signals the WS manager to start trimming working sets and write out modified and mapped pages to disk. If the page writers aren't able to free up a sufficient number of pages within this time frame, and there are a large number of modified pages waiting to be written out to the pagefile, the system bugchecks: 0x0000004D. In order to assist the modified page writer, the disk driver blocks all other IO requests until a sufficient number of pages have been freed. It then logs an informational event stating the period during which non-paging requests were queued. It looks like someone is allocating a large number of pages and dirtying them thus resulting in a large number of modified pages. You might want to look at all applications that are running when these events are logged and narrow them down to determine the root cause".
