Tracerpt.exe consumed 60GB (!) of virtual memory
Posted on 2016-10-31
A PC froze and found this in the event logs.
Event ID 2004
Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: tracerpt.exe (43376) consumed 60695384064 bytes...
I set up perfmon monitoring on a few PCs a few weeks ago. It is set to re-start everyday at 12AM. Have not had any issues with it until this.
This event also has not occurred at any other time other than when the PC froze.
I am only collecting these under Performance Counters
\Memory\% Committed Bytes in Use
\Process(*)\% Privileged Time
\Process(*)\% Processor Time
\Process(*)\% User Time
Any idea how tracerpt.exe grew so large and how I could stop it from happening again?
If I delete the 'NT Kernel' Trace monitor from collection, would it help?
