Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

Hi Peter,

this is the log file where the memory usage by OVSD APplication SErver is stamped.

you can use this file to monitor the memory usage and whenever the memory usage hits certain amount of threshold, an alert can be configured so that the OVSD application server is restarted to be on a safer side.

hope this clarifies.

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

Thanks for the reply. It does sort of clarify things.

Can you explain the meaning of the entry which I posted please?

Also how would I go about configuring an alert such as the one you suggest?

Thanks.

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

I assume you are talking about SD5? I don't see a logmemory.txt on 4.5 SP15.

Cheers

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

Hi,

no, you already have in SD4.5, but you will have to install SP19 for this.
Could you tell how I could restart the app server as you mention above?

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

This is in SD4.5 with SP17.

Can anybody explain the detail of the entry I posted?

What do all those numbers tell you?

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

Hi Peter,

I'm afraid I am not skilled in tuning Java but I know that giving it more memory via installservice.bat (bin directory) you can get better performance. This logmemory.txt would help you see the effects???

We currently have 2 Gig of RAM in our App server and have the following settings.

sd_serverservice.exe -install "hp OpenView service desk 4.5 server" DEFAULT -XX:MaxNewSize=64M -XX:NewSize=64M -Xms200M -Xmx1000M -Djava.class.path="%SD_SERVERHOME%lib\classloader.jar" "-Duser.dir=%SD_SERVERHOME%\" -start com.hp.startup.Bootstrap -params com.hp.ifc.bus.AppServer -stop com.hp.startup.Bootstrap -method shutdown -params com.hp.ifc.bus.AppServer -current "%SD_SERVERHOME%\"

I tried making the values bigger but had issues - service wouldn't start. I suspect we could give OVSD more memory for better performance.

There are posts on the meaning of the parameters but I found them a little confusing.

Cheers

PS: the default memory allocation via installservice.bat is very small!!!

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

David,

Thanks for that. I have increased the default memory size in installservice.bat to 128M, as per the instructions on other posts, it seems to work OK.

I'd like to understand more about the settings and the entries in the log files, hopefully to become more pro-active rather than re-active.

Thanks.

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

Excellent,

How much physical RAM do you have in the server? Could you post the line from installservice.bat?

I would like to increase ours but don't fully understand the switches even after reading the posts :-(

Re: Server log file - Logmemory.txt

Hey, this is supposed to be my thread, how am I going to get any points? :-)

We have 1Gb of physical memory on the app. server and I have attached a word doc containing the installservice.bat and the server.bat files which I amended to increase memory allocation.

Good luck.

Now, does anybody understand the entry I post originally? If so please explain.

Thanks.
