If someone can help me to resolve a conflict between SQLBASE 6.1 and Arcserve 6 installed on a Netware 4.1 server.
I work for a little organisation NVAGG (The Netherlands), sometimes wil Arcserve not start a job because there is not enough memory available. When we unload the SQLBase NLM's and again load those NLM's the trouble temporarely disappeares.
I can buy more ram, but wil my problem be solved?

SERVER MEMORY STATISTICS
Allocated Memory POOL           24.115.776       36%
Cache Buffers                   20.066.304       30%
Cache movable memory            11.616.256       17%
Cache non-movable memory           622.592        1%
Cache and Datamemory             9.999.808       16%
Total server work memory        66.420.736      100%

Thanks for your response

All things being equal, yes more memory should solve the out of memory problem with Arcserve.  When Arcserve is idle, it uses very little memory and resources.  When it starts a job, it auto-loads the NLMs needed to do the job.

You didn't say, but I'm assuming that the statistics you gave above are during Arcserve's idle time.  If this is true, then you are definitely low on memory evidenced by the cache buffers value (30%).  For proper performance, Novell recommends that cache buffers be at least 40% during peak activity.

Based on the information provided, I would recommend putting another 24-32 MB into the server.  If memory is as cheap there as it is here, it's definitely worth the cost.
