Pagefile Space does not match NT4 server listing

From my Windows 2000 PC, when in Computer Management -> System Tools -> System Summary, what is the Page File Space if I am looking at an NT4 server? This number does not match what is listed on the NT4 server when I check the pagefile settings using System Properties -> Performance. Also, if this Page File Space is not the same as the pagefile settings listed under System Properties -> Performance, how can this Page File Space be changed on the NT4 server?

Microsoft documentation provides this definition: Page File Space is the physical space on the hard disk that the operating system uses to increase the apparent size of RAM. It almost always takes more physical space on the hard drive than the actual size of a file to store it. For example, check the properties of any directory and compare the size and the size on disk values.
