Hi guys, need your help with this memory leak issue using dbsrv9. I have set a -c 64m and -ch 128m to limit the memory usage but the -c and -ch option is not working. In fact, it is now at 1 gb and increasing.

Hope you can give me some ideas, i have been struggling to solve this for almost amount now.

What is the build number? SELECT @@VERSION

Exactly where do you see the "1 gb" number?

What does this query return? SELECT PROPERTY ( 'CurrentCacheSize' ), PROPERTY ( 'MaxCacheSize' );

Please show us the exact command line that launches dbsrv9.exe.

Thank you for your reply.

Actually i have no idea about sybase database. I am just wondering if you have answers with Symantec embedded database issue (Adaptive server anywhere), which we think has memory leak.

Exactly where do you see the "1 gb" number? - It is the memory usage listed under task manager

Please show us the exact command line that launches dbsrv9.exe. - I did not launch the command, it is pre configured by symantec application and listed under registry settings. Please see below info

-c 64m -ch 64m -gp 8192 -gc 30 -gr 30 -o "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Protection Center\db\out.log" -oe "C:\Program Files\SymantecSymantec Protection Center\db\err.log" -os 1m -gn 80 -n Win2k8 "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Protection Center\db\sem5.db" -n sem5 -sb 0 -x tcpip(localonly=yes;port=2638)

Hope you can give me some answers.

Your best hope is to call Symantec tech support for the product that using the database.

You could also try calling Sybase tech support:

Breck was correct in his first recommendation: contact Symantec Technical Support ( ). They are responsible for the application itself, it's supported versions, and your specific environment configuration.

Symantec is a partner of Sybase.
