I need some recommendations, suggestion or advise on setting the Pagefile size on my two servers; both are running Server 2016. On some websites I have read set the Pagefile to 1.5X or 2X the size of actual RAM. Others say let the server manage itself. Here is my current Pagefile settings. My servers have 48GB of RAM. Thank you.

Unless you have some process with special needs then System managed is probably your best bet.
