Hi guys,

strange behavour on a HP ML350 server with Netware 6 on it.

It reboots every 24-48 hours and reports errors on :
---------------------------------------------------------------
NSS < NSSLIB> - 3.03-219 malloc page.c[55]

Error allocating 1 pages of memory
You may not have enough memory either close some
Other applications or add more memory
Short term memory allocation is out of memory
1094 attemts to get more memory failed
request size in bytes 580 from module XENGEXP.NLM

OR

abend on p 00 page fault processor exception
(error code 00000002)
running process mcshld access oo process

the cpu encountered a problem executing code in LIBNSS.NLM.
the problem in that module or in data passed to that module by a process
owned by netshld.nlm
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I disabled Netschield and then it errors on connaud.nlm

Is this a memory problem or can you come up with anything?

OK, NetWare v6. WHAT SERVICE PACK?

Also, how much memory does this machine have?

What are you running on it? Does it just do file & print services, or are you running massive MySQL databases on it, or hosting 500 websites with Apache?

These are critical questions. We're Experts, not mindreaders.

When it is up and running, after about 12 hours, what is the percentage of RAM as Cache (look in Monitor)?

Also, disabled Netshield? Does this mean you remarked the LOAD statement out of AUTOEXEC.NCF, or did you simply tell NetShield not to do anything. If the latter, then it is still in there, consuming RAM.

OK, NetWare v6.0 with SP3. I'll note that the latest Support Pack for NetWare v6.0 is SP5, so you're behind the times on that.

Hmmm... your Original Cache Buffers to Current Cache Buffers ratio check in at about 25%. I expect that your Cache Buffer Memory percentage (go to the MONITOR screen, select System Resources) is similarly low.

Also, your Directory Cache Buffers are sitting at 0. That isn't right. Minimum is 10, and you probably need more than that, especially with NetMail running.

I suspect at least part of your problem is insufficient RAM in the server. You have 1GB. I'd suggest adding 256 to 512 MB. And applying SP 5 - as I recall, there was a memory leak in FILESYS.NLM that was fixed in SP4.
