In Windows 7, when should "page faults" become concern for investigation?
I'm referencing the "Page Faults" column in Windows' Task Manager. Sorting by "Page Faults", there are a number of applications that have endlessly climbing page fault counts.
Is there a metric for determining whether page faults (or particular amount of) should be cause for concern and/or troubleshooting?
I'm concerned that rogue programs are possibly "thrashing" away at the disks with firehoses of page faults.
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 12GB RAM, rarely ever filled past half capacity (while page faults continue to soar) SSD main drive
For reference, the seeming large "culprits" on a cursory overview of Task Manager are (in descending order): Firefox, CCC (Catalyst Control Center), WinVNC, AfterBurner, and Everything Search.
