We have win 2003 R2 64bit SP1 server where we have Lotus Notes Server Installed.

C drive space is 10 gb free space is 3 gb

Memory is 4gb.
Virtual Memory is set as 2096 for C drive

Standalone mcafee installed & updated.

we are getting alert that our mail Cpu & memory utilization is high & its critical crosses threshold limit every now & then.

Now we tried all the thing but could not increase the cpu & memory performace.

Any suggestion is welcome.

I'm a *nix Engineer so probably someone more expert than me in the Win world can have his/her say on the matter anyhow keep in mind that spikes in memory and cpu usage are pretty normal in a production environment specially when on the same server you are running heave duty stuff like an antivirus and Lotus Domino (notes is the client part :)), as long as this spikes are not hanging anything or creating problems/bottlenecks I would just ignore them.

I imagine you are using a monitoring software (Scom? Nagios? Opsview? something else?) and you should spend some time with the monitoring engineers to tweak it and adapt to your baseline server performance.

What most admins and engineers usually ignore is the fact that a monitoring software is pretty useless with default values, like MS SCOM, as every server, infrastruscutre and environment is different and simply you cannot have a "good for all" solution.

So take some time to analyze the situation and in case change the monitoring rules.

Cheers Lethe.

Did you actually tried to take into consideration something of what was told you? And if yes what have you done?

Coming out and saying "I have a problem" is not really the best way to get help if you don't give people information on the environment, what you have done etc.

I've also checked the screens you sent, what are we supposed to get form those? I see a windows server operating normally...

One of my Linux machines is operating 98% of CPU all the time, but as I have a baseline I know that's normal... what about you? Di you spend some time tracing a performance baseline for the server role?

MCSE Certification Exam: Server 2003 Infrastructure (70-291)
Microsoft exam (70-291), Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure is a core networking system requirement for the MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and MCSA (Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator) on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 certifications. It is designed for IT professionals and MCSE candidates who work in a medium to large scale business environment and have at least 12 months of experience as a Microsoft system administrator. The list of areas that an MCSE must know to pass a particular MCSE certification exam is called a list of domains.
The official domains represent the knowledge that Microsoft expects certification candidates to have in order to earn the Microsoft MCSE certification. The Microsoft (70-291) exam will include realistic and complex simulation questions from these domains involving the administration of Microsoft Windows and its use in a Medium to Large Scale environment. There is no set format, as Microsoft changes the exam on occasion as the requirements for MCSE certification are revised. The exam contains multiple choice, drag and drop, multiple answer, and simulation based questions with a total somewhere between 45 and 70. According to Microsoft, you must achieve a 700 out of 1000 score on the exam in order to pass and gain credit toward your MCSE certification, and any other relevant Microsoft certifications. The nature of the questions and content on the exam is a major influence on the type of training a candidate will use to prepare.

About MCSE:
The Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) certification suffered a bad reputation several years back when numerous people were memorizing the answers to exam questions from "brain dumps" posted by test-takers on the Internet and obtaining the certification without any real understanding of the technology.
Microsoft responded by replacing the knowledge-based multiple-choice questions with a variety of performance-related scenario questions that make it much more difficult to cheat. The difficulty level of the questions was escalated, and the number of exams required to obtain the certification was increased to seven.
The MCSE has consequently regained respect in many corners of the IT community and is a useful certification for demonstrating your expertise in Microsoft server products.

Preparing for the MCSE 2003 Messaging certification
There is no quick mantra for success. Several studies have shown that the best way to learn is to take a test! Practice tests that is. Taking practice tests before a subsequent exam appear to be the most popular method of learning, even more favored that other popular methods such as repetition and concept mapping.
A high quality test preparation software such as [spammers] Prepkits will not only help you learn the MCSE Messaging exams material and pass the certification exam in your first attempt.
