Unable to monitor database

  • I have 5 databases that I would like to monitor (v10.2B on windows 2012 server) and 4 of them work perfectly. The 5th one gives the error: Unable to attach shared memory Global\sharemem.c.spserver.data.ams.amsdata.0, error 0. (1720)

    Has anyone any suggestions please?

  • I asked Kynan to post here to hopefully pool knowledge.

    So far we have tried reducing the -B on the database. This is 32bit Progress executables.
    We have also tried running the dbmonitor manually from an elevated proenv session.

    Neither of these have worked.

    Older 32 bit releases sometimes have attitude problems about allocating shared memory that don't become apparent until a batch client or character client attaches to them. Try starting your databases with -shmsegsize 128.

    (Ok, actually the problem is probably that the old oe10 _progres.exe was not improved to handle larger segments at the same time that the db server executables were.)

  • That has worked. Thank you

    @kynan great!
