POA Agent Uses Uses all memory in system then is killed.

System OES2 SP3 latest patches
Groupwise 2012 SP1
4GB Ram
The POA is uses all the memory growing to 65% before the system is out of memory.

Ran GWCheck structure and content fix.

Opened a SR with Novell.

Found the SLAP error, did the procedures per Tid=7009119

Start the POA everything seem okay, so added couple of user. After all the users got on the system the memory usage started to climb.

Check the logs no errors.

Could this be caused by on of the clients????

Any Idea would help

Re: POA Agent Uses Uses all memory in system then is killed.

How many users on this POA? The POA can consume a large amount of RAM, but not normally. Ours is sitting at about .5GB for about 500 heavy users. The GWIA and GWINTER typically grow very fat: 2 -4 GB.

Since you have a SR open, work the problem with the engineer, if it looks like its languishing, you can always ask for an escalation.

Does this server have swap configured? A caption from top might help us to know whats what, including the line for the POA in question.
