I have alert mails from SCOM which indicates the counter workfile creation/sec is high. When checked its going above 38.
Tempdb is not growing.
I have SQL 2K8 Ent. 64 bit 8GB Memory for sql.

My doubts are bleow.

What is the value for workfile creation/sec to be worried?
How should I dig deep into to check what is causing this?

This counter indicates the number of work files created per second. Workfiles are used in processing hash operations when the amount of data being processed is too large to fit into the available memory.

there is no fixed threshold for this counter. You should compare it with a baseline. To reduce this number, you should tune the queries, review indexes and add memory if required.
