Physical memory limit reached

Description

The server watches the physical amount of memory left in the system and usable by applications. The calculation of the physical memory available for the alienbrain server is done differently compared to tools like TaskManager or Sysinternals ProcessExplorer. Therefore the Alienbrain server might consume less memory compared to what seems to be available.

Cause

There are several causes that can trigger this warning. The most probable are:

  • You have one or more other services running on the Alienbrain Server host using lots of memory.
  • You don't have enough physical memory in your machine compared to the size of your project.

Results

The result can be a server slowdown, because the operating system starts excessive swapping of memory pages, reducing the memory access times of the server.

Solution

If possible, you should put more physical memory in the server machine. If you have more than 2GB of physical memory available you can also enable the Alienbrain server to make use of it. Please e-mail the Alienbrain Support Team for further information about this topic.

If you are using more than one project on this machine, you can host some of them on other machines.

If you have other services running on that machine, stop them or move the services to other machines if possible.

Please monitor the system closely and contact NXN if necessary.
