Hashtable -> memory limit?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :WPF

I'm running into an odd problem here... I want to store a lot of data into a Hashtable, however whener my system hits about 980MB of memory consumption I'm getting out of memory exceptions. However, my systems has 2GB of RAM so there's still about 1GB free. Any ideas why this could be the case?

SSRS 2008 log file - maximum memory limit



In my SSRS 2008 log file, in few starting lines I see these lines;

INFO: Reporting Services starting SKU: Enterprise
resourceutilities!ReportServer_0-3!1874!10/05/2010-13:32:29:: i INFO: Maximum memory limit is 2097152Mb

What does it mean by maximum memory  limit is 2097152Mb?

I have set the maximum memory limit for SSRS to 5 GB.

SharePoint Health Analyzer Alert: Application Pool Memory Limit


I receive the below alert in the SharePoint Health Analyzer alerts. Looking at the application pools on my WFE (and my app server), nothing is configured to have a memory limit. I'm wondering if this is maybe a permission issue? My permissions appear to be the same as my other 2010 farm, which does not have this issue and the same setup steps were taken. I don't see any messages in the event log on either server that look to be related.

Has anyone else seen this and resolved it? Or do you have any other tips for things I can look into to resolve it? Thanks in advance.


Application pools recycle when memory limits are exceeded.

How to detect and avoid memory and resources leaks in .NET application

Despite what a lot of people believe, it's easy to introduce memory and resources leaks in .NET applications. The Garbage Collector, or GC for close friends, is not a magician who would completely relieve you from taking care of your memory and resources consumption.

I'll explain in this article why memory leaks exist in .NET and how to avoid them. Don't worry, I won't focus here on the inner workings of the garbage collector and other advanced characteristics of memory and resources management in .NET.

file upload in chunks or not buffering in memory before writing to disk?


What are the options for handling file uploads to reduce the memory footprint?  Is there a way to upload in chunks?  Is there a way to stream upload directly to disk instead of loading entire file in server memory?

Maximum memory for string ? . System.MemoryOutOfException Occurs when reading the Content of the fil



I have a C++ code which reads a file [vtk file - its similar to text file only]. and try to store it in string.

here's the code:

String^ ParallelProjectionRenderer::GetVolumeDataAsString(String^ FileName)

    vtkSmartPointer<vtkDataSetWriter> sWriter = vtkSmartPointer<vtkDataSetWriter>::New();

    String^ FileName = "D:\\Users\\...";

    char * sptName = static_cast<char *>(Marshal::StringToHGlobalAnsi(FileName).ToPointer());







    String^ result= File::ReadAllText(FileName);   [it breaks here with system.memoryoutofexception when the file size is huge]

    return result;


this code executes fine when the file size is less than 8mb.

I wanted to know whats the maximum memory allocated to the string.

As a workaround i skipped reading out in C++ code. and i tried to read the file contents in asp.net C# code and stor

Tools for memory error check in VS2005


Dear all,

I am going to write vs2005 program with ASP.NET and C++.

As you know that C++ will involve a lot of memory error handling.

Do you know is there any tools for checking memory error in Code Behind C++??

{ End Bracket }: Transactions for Memory


Injecting parallelism into your app is easy-managed code offers things like explicit threading and a thread pool for that. Ensuring your code remains correct when run in parallel, on the other hand, is not quite so simple.

Memory Models: Understand the Impact of Low-Lock Techniques in Multithreaded Apps


Because the use of low-lock techniques in your application significantly increases the likelihood of introducing hard-to-find bugs, it is best to use them only when absolutely necessary. Here Vance Morrison demonstrates the limitations and subtleties low-lock techniques so that if you are forced to use them you have a better chance of using them correctly.

Memory Lane: Rediscover the Lost Art of Memory Optimization in Your Managed Code


Managed applications rely on the garbage collector in the .NET Framework to allocate and clean up memory. The little CPU time spent performing garbage collection (GC) is usually a fair trade-off for not having to worry about memory management. But for applications in which CPU time and memory are precious resources, minimizing the time spent garbage collecting can greatly improve application performance and robustness. Find out how to manage memory all over again.

Visual C++ 6.0: Don't Let Memory Allocation Failures Crash Your Legacy STL Application


Most C++ developers make extensive use of the Standard Template Library (STL) in their code. If you are one of them and are using STL and Visual C++ 6.0 directly out of the box, your application is at high risk of crashing under low memory conditions. The problem arises because checking for failure of operator new is such an uncommon practice. To make things worse, when new does fail, the response is not standard. Some language compilers return NULL while others throw an exception.In addition, if you are using STL in an MFC project, be aware that MFC has its own set of rules. This article discusses these problems, explains how the default behavior has changed in Visual C++ .NET 2003, and outlines the changes you must make if you're using Visual C++ 6.0 so that you can safely use the STL when operator new fails.
