RAM increases to 99% every time backup jobs run


FileMaker Server


Operating system version

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64 bit

Description of the issue

Every time the backup runs the Used Physical Memory gradually increases to 99% and maintains that level until the job is finished. And then it immediately goes back down to the 20 to 29% range.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Problem occurs every time the backup runs at 6:00am, 12 noon and 6:00pm.

Configuration information

We have cleared space on the C drive so that at least 50% is available. The physical RAM has been increased from 4 GB's to 12 GB's. Virtual Memory has been increased to 18 GB's. And just today, the Database cache was increased from 128 MB's to 3072 MB's. All of these efforts have been fruitless, unfortunately. Besides Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, there really is no significant applications running on this server. Not really sure where else to turn now.
