  • Sounds like you are running System Center Operations Manager and you have exceeded a threshold on one of your rules.

    If you are not running SCOM, we will most likely need more information.

  • Hi,

    What is the role of the server in question? I agree with Tim. Looks like SCOM alert to me. Can you provide more info on the issue?

  • I have issue with my window server 2008 R2 that some of my running services are consuming more memory.

    and we are getting alarm from SCOM.We have configured our server with SCOM.

    Is there is any process so that the running services can consume low memory?

    IF I will exceed the threshold value the above error will stop or not.

    Please help.

    Regards

    Sandy

  • There are multiple ways to identify the root cause of the issue.

    a) OS layer : Complete memory dump, Process explorer (Initial analysis), Performance counters analysis etc..

    b) Application Layer : Turn on Application level logging (process level, thread and fibre analysis) , or if the high cpu utilization is occurring within a managed or unmanaged code.

    In short there is no direct answer for your problem, and the issue might require analysis of OS source code / Application source code. I would recommend you open up a case with MS if these are prod servers and they will be able to assist you. If you are familiar with understanding and performing User mode and kernel mode debugging, then you might start with

    a) get a complete memory dump and analyse the process corresponding to executable.
    b) Understand process stack, CLR memory (if applicable) etc..

  • "Is there is any process so that the running services can consume low memory?"

    That is completely dependent upon the application.  You will need to investigate the application to see if it can be constrained.  Or, you determine that it needs more memory and you change your alert so that it does not alert at a level that is acceptable.

    "IF I will exceed the threshold value the above error will stop or not."

    As I stated on the first point, you might have to change the alert to test for a different value.

    These questions are not really about Windows Server.  You are talking about how SCOM works.  So you might want to post detailed questions in a SCOM forum.

  • Hi Sandeep,

    As Tim mentioned, it is better to post the problem in SCOM forum.

    Here is the link for the forum:
