Server Crashing with message "Too many virtual memory blocks requested"
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When running a server on a dedicated box I keep getting the message "Too many virtual memory blocks requested". I see no reason why this should be occurring. I has seen it once in Alpha, but now is is showing up 1-3 times daily in Stable build Beta and Dev build Beta. {F20534} {F20535}


Legacy ID

Unknown exactly but it seems to occur when the server is over 30 players.

RAM: 16 GB DDR3 ECC Memory

You are using a server-side mod...does it happen without that mod?

Also, could you please attach RPT and any *dmp files?

On a normal night i tried some performance scripts on a arma server and BAM i got it a "Too many virtual memory blocks requested"

For reproducing i tested the lel.sqf i sended BIS_Iceman (Its extracted out of hacker who visited our server, the reason why i won't upload it).
The scripted where looped, endless.

My servers are crashing regularly too...
When the mission restarts it retains the memory from the last session.
The RAM just builds up until it crashes.

The memory leak is a known issue, try to kill the server and restart fresh

Yes that's exactly what I'm having to do every time, It's a real pain in the grenades :-z
Especially as one of the servers is persistent and should take care of itself.

The Steam DEV build today fixed the issue for me the server reached 3GB ram without any problem. THX BI
