Solid Database error

Posted on 2011-04-26

I got the follwoing error message from my solid database.

I have recently increased the cache size in the solid.ini file from 0.5Gb to 2Gb (= 268435456 Bytes). Do i need to increase it more to resolve this error or is it not related to this setting. Prior to me increasing the cache size to 2Gigb i did get the "there is too little cache memory allocated for the SOLID process" error.

Now i get this error instead.
"Solid FlowEngine process has encountered an internal error and is unable
to continue normally. Please report the following information
to Solid Information Technology <>.
SOLID Fatal error: Out of central memory (alloc size = 3874132, total bytes = -249502860)
Product: SOLID Embedded Engine
Version: 03.52.0008
Operating system: Solaris 8 SPARC MT"

    Did you try to lower the cache size to 1GB ? and back to 0.5GB ?
    May be although this is a 32bits process that can't use that "much" memory...

    Ensure that you have sufficient resources on your server first, only then can you go ahead and increase your database cache accordingly.
    This should sort you out, thanks.

    Solid FlowEngine on Solaris 8 only exists in 32bits.
    This means you should LOWER the cache in solid.ini down to where you have no more error.
