[THIN] Re: virutal memory errors

Hi,

I used to think that the only thing that produced "out of virtual memory"
errors was application memory leaks. Then one of my customers rang up with a
problem, thousands (well about 2300) instances of the same application. And
there was the time one customer had a really neat little DOS app that sized
memeory by allocating all memory and then releasing it. Ever seen NTVDM at
nearly a GB?

You're going to have to do a bit of research. The easiest start is with task
manager, and including memory, virtual memory and memory delta in the
display data. Sort on VM and you'll find your leaky application fairly
quickly. Of course if it's a system process things just got more
interesting.

Regards,

Rick

I keep getting "Out of Virtual Memory" errors. In Performance Options, my
Total paging file size says 20MB. When I click on change it shows the
correct values for initial and maximum size. The pagefile.sys is over 2GB
and the server has 2GB of RAM. Anyone seen this?

 

Server is 2K SP3 / XP FR2
