    Default Zimbra on a VDS - Memory Problems

    Hi all,

    I have read a lot of threads here where problems were fixed installing Zimbra on a OpenVZ System, but the problems were always solved on the host system... :-(

    I pay for a Linux.VDS (vanager.com) and could not get the point, where to fix the memory problem!

    For example the mysql.log

    mysqld started
    060517 20:15:13 InnoDB: Error: cannot allocate 2549104640 bytes of
    InnoDB: memory with malloc! Total allocated memory
    InnoDB: by InnoDB 29721352 bytes. Operating system errno: 12
    InnoDB: Check if you should increase the swap file or
    InnoDB: ulimits of your operating system.
    InnoDB: On FreeBSD check you have compiled the OS with
    InnoDB: a big enough maximum process size.
    InnoDB: We keep retrying the allocation for 60 seconds...
    InnoDB: Fatal error: cannot allocate the memory for the buffer pool
    060517 20:16:13 [ERROR] Can't init databases
    060517 20:16:13 [ERROR] Aborting

    Is it possible to say that Zimbra should only use a given RAM-Size? I have 512MB garantied, but it seems like the burstable memory of my provider is added to the possible mem and so it doesn't work! :-(

    The >uname -srvmp< will give the result:
    Linux 2.6.8-022stab070.9-enterprise #1 SMP Thu Apr 20 10:48:12 MSD 2006 i686 i686
    (Yes, I have currently SuSE 9.3 running on my Server - but other Systems are also available!! Wouldn't be a problem for me to change the operating system)


    Any help would be nice!!!

    Hi

    Welcome to the forums.

    Is this a test system or are you intending to put it in production on VDS? More RAM is always better for Zimbra. Have you tried some suggestions on the forums for reducing the memory requirements?
    Regards

    Well - I will use it for myself as a private server - so there won't be more than 30 users... Therefore I think the RAM should be enough... ;-)

    I haven't found anything here how to reduce the memory it should use for starting the processes - I think the problem is, that the "upper limit" for the RAM hasn't been set (AFAIK it is burstable) - but I don't know where I could fix it so that - for example the mysqld - doesn't see more than the given memory...

    Any hints for fixing that problem?

    Well, I still think you'll need to increase the amount of RAM as the recommended minimum is 1Gb. There's a thread here that describes how to reduce the ram requirements of Zimbra, try that and see if it helps.

    I don't know if you saw this how-to that one of the forums members wrote, is it of any help to you?
    Regards

    Hi Bill,

    yes, I have already seen the second post... There it seems like they are doing something on the host system and not with the zimbra-configuration...

    The first one sounds better for me... Well - but there they change the percentage amount of memory the applications should use - for me there woulb a "static" value the better way because of the additional burstable memory of my vserver...

    But I will test that this evening... Maybe that would really help...

    But when you have any other suggestions - you're always welcome ;-)
