comment Task Manager Memory Discrepancy
Those are “File Objects”, “Io parsing names”, “NTFS Specific CCB_DATA” and “Cache Manager Private Cache Map”. So I know what they are, but still have no idea why they are using more memory than normal.

This led me to see that Nonpaged Pool memory is using 2.4 GB, which in turn led me to poolmon.exe to determine what is using Nonpaged Pool memory. The top four consumers have tags of File, IoNm, Ntfc, and CcPc, so I am going to try figure out why those are so high.

comment Task Manager Memory Discrepancy
Thanks for the update, but that explanation does not seem adequate. On systems with 10+GB of free memory and only 2111 MB listed in the processes list the graph is showing 4.49 GB in use, which would mean that more memory was being paged to disk than the total amount shown for all processes on the box. If this were just one system I would count it as a fluke, but I've seen it on all five I've looked at so far.

This is the exact opposite of what I am seeing. See the text in bold.

+1 That worked! Adding 1 GB more in the same way did the trick.

Our SA did it. I'm not sure how. It has always worked in the past.

I think the disk controller is LSI Logic Parallel and the vmdk types are SCSI. Not sure if that is what you are looking for.

comment Rolling Upgrade of Oracle 11g from 32 bit to 64 bit?
+1 Thanks for the great answer and the documentation link. I was thinking I would need a logical standby during the upgrade, but I was hoping I could start out with a physical and convert to logical just before the upgrade. I think you are saying that 32 bit and 64 bit are different architectures, so I can't create the physical standby at all. Is that correct? If it is that means I'll have to deal with the statements that don't transfer in a logical standby for a longer period of time.

A reboot seems to have resolved the problem even though it doesn't explain it.
