Driverhealth consumption memory (IDM 4.7 + edir 9.1.1)
I started a new post here, in the previous, some of us shared a problem of memory consumption in a windows environment with IDM (https://forums.novell.com/showthread.php/508363-Memory-problem-with-eDirectory-9-1-IDM-on-Windows)
Now we have identified the cause, I will resume here:
windows environment with IDM 4.7 and eDir 9.1.1 with problems of memory consumption produced by the execution of the job of driverhealth: every time the job is executed, the consumption of memory increases (until 100%) and is not released after its completion.
same problem with IDM 4.7.1 or 4.6.2 with 9.1.1 or 9.1, in a fresh or updated from a previous version
Any Java expert? Any idea how to fix it?
the documentation says that the memory consumption should not be so high or increase:
has managed memory well for decades, and a bug like this jumping in
suddenly in the middle of the 1.8 series just seems unlikely, but a new
bug finding its way into IDM seems more-probable (than the Java issue).
I think the best course is to get a fix from Micro Focus as they will have
access to the code that does this, unless they are saying it is a basic

We also experienced this bug. The windows server crashed after 24h with just monitoring one single driver. Is there a timeframe when we can expect a solution for this major "Bug".
There are diffrent memory consumption issues.
Some were fixed i eDir 9.1.4
I am told the one I'm experiencig will be fixed in eDir 9.2 that will be out soon.
While I wait for that I have disabled the healt job since it is getting triggered by the job activity.
That worked well for me until I stared to use other jobs, now I need to restart eDir every second day as well. But got that scheduled so that works for a few weeks until I get the new version (hopefully)
We haven't seen that specific issue, but we did get a memory management fix for eDirectory on Windows. (fix is not included in eDir 9.1.4)
It has made a huge difference in reliability and performance at ALL of our customers.
Suggest you try and obtain that and test again, your issue might go away.
We have not seen any substantial pure memory leaks since applying that fix.
We are also experiencing memory issues on Windows (eDir 188.8.131.52 and IDM 184.108.40.206). We have singled out that the workorder driver is consuming memory. We have an SR open, but no solution yet.
@Alex McHughdo you have a SR or patch reference I can use to try that patch? I have not received it yet. (didn't know it existed even!)
Our SR# was 101243968911
The issue was in eDirectory in the memory allocation library.
Our remaining issue with redcent IDM/eDir versions is not a memory leak but rather a handle leak in certain situations. This may to be related to misconfigured SNMP on the server.
Please do not share “one-off” fixes that way, the best would be to have people open an SR and refer to the Bug to get the fix. That way MF will see how many people have the problem, and maybe be faster in releasing an public patch.
