I have exactly the same situation as Nir Lahav (Exchange 2000 SP3, 1Gb RAM,
STORE.EXE occupied most of 1Gb in a couple of days)
And! I know that STORE.EXE grows _exactly_ during every night "Information
Store (2560) Online defragmentation ..."
I'm not worry about eating up memory, I see some performance degradation.
Would you be so kind to comment "Q266768 XSTR: How to Modify the Store
Database Maximum Cache Size" article. Can I decrees
msExchESEParamCacheSizeMax to avoid described situation?
