Reaons- nproduct.log in ED- having high cache & memory size

Hi All,

In our server we found that the nproduct.log is getting continuously
cached (The cache size is increasing continuously) which is resulting in
the very high utillization of the memory space. can any one suggest how
can we found the source for this cache and also suggest the reason for
the same.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Reaons- nproduct.log in ED- having high cache & memory size

Could you share additional information? The nproduct.log is created by
the Platform Agent; which version are you using, and which applications
are running it?

When you write about the cache, do you mean the filesystem cache/buffers
as seen with the 'free' command? If so, there is nothing to worry about.
That cache is only there as a convenience, and will be released as soon
as the system needs memory to do something other than be idle (cache is,
by definition, memory that is idle and not otherwise used).

Also, how did you see that this file was taking up that cache space,
exactly? I've never peeked into the FS cache (assuming that's the thing
to which you refer) and would like to know how it is done.

Good luck.
