How do I troubleshoot this CLR error in SQL Server (64-bit) spatial

Posted on 2016-09-08

I have the following query:

    Insert into PropertyTractsTemp
    		P.field1 as field1 , 
    		P.field2 as field2, 
    		P.field3 as field3, 
    		P.field4 as field4, 
    		P.field5 as field5
    	join BH_EDW.dbo.REF_GEOID_GEOG G WITH(INDEX([geog_sidx]))on G.geom.STIntersects(P.GeoLocation) =1
    	where P.GEOID is null

Open in new window

This may have 1,000 to 100Mil records to match up.
Either way, the query stops and I receive this error:

    Msg 10316, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
    The app domain with specified version id (4) was unloaded due to memory pressure and could not be found.
    The statement has been terminated.

Open in new window

I'm told it's a CLR error, and it has something to do with the spatial index but no explanation on how to troubleshoot it.

Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

1) How much memory has your server (hardware) and what are your SQL Server min memory and max memory settings?

2) What SQL Server version and bitness do you use?

That may be one of the problem. Per best practices recommended by Microsoft, if RAM > 8GB is available on the server, a minimum of 4GB must be kept reserved for the OS. So, in this case SQL Server max memory should be 60GB (at a maximum, assuming there are no other applications or services running on the server).

So you're not leaving nothing for the operating system.
My recommendation is that you leave a minimum of 4GB to Windows (set MSSQL max memory to 60GB). If you can double it then even better.

ok.  trying.  please be patient.  I'm running this query on 80+ Million records.  The error doesn't appear until somewhere around 40-60M with a 1.1M / hr speed.  I'll do ask you ask, and let you know.

Thank you.
