How do we set up memory traces on a Win 2003 server? I want for it to monitor the system over a period of a month and give us a baseline on memory usage, maximums and more so when I upgrade the machine in a few weeks I have data that says there was a reason for it.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can use Perfmon and use memory counters to monitor say every 30mts and probably for a week. You can then sort via usage and see what time was the peak usage…

    You can also use some open source monitoring tool, such as Zenoss or Zabbix, which will allow you to monitor many things (including memory usage) on every device in your network.

    Check out the tool Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL). This tool will parse out MS perfmon logs using templates and gives a report of the measurements against standard thresholds. This is a good tool to review a system for issues.
