if you want a complete crash dump you want 1x RAM size. since you are using MCS crash dump files wont be saved anyways, I see little point.


I would set to 2048 MB to 4096 MB depending on your comfort level. remember if the server memory is full and the pagefile is exhausted the server will blue screen or start crashing. make sure to put load evaluator rules to mark servers as full to prevent this from occurring and use pagefile as a safety buffer.


if you want to sizing guidelines from Microsoft, look here
