How to configure windows system resource manager(WSRM)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the windows system resource manager to limit the memory usage of a specific process.

    I've found an interesting thing about the WSRM.

    My server is a virtual server with 4096M physical memory and windows 2008 R2 64bit OS.

    When I limit the process with smaller than 2048M memory, the WSRM works.

    When I limit the process with larger than 2048M memory, the WSRM doesn't work.

    I've tried 5times with my server.

    1536M(woks), 2047M(works), 2048M(doesn't work), 2049M(doesn't work), 2560M(doesn't work)

    Does the WSRM has any limitation of the memory usage? like only half of the physical memory can be defined?

  • Anyone who can help me?
    I've tried the same thing on a physical server with the same OS and larger physical memory with 12G memory

    the threshold is still 2048M

    It is a WSRM bug or WSRM can only control 2G memory to each process?
