Advisory: HP SIM slow or consumes all memory

I searched for this a while back and was unable to find any good info. Hopefully this will help someone else.

Add the following entries to the end of the MX.PROPERTIES file located in the Microsoft Windows directory \Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\config or in the Linux and HP-UX directory /etc/opt/mx/config:
MX_JOB_MAX_COMPLETED_JOBS_PER_TASK=3
MX_JOB_MAX_COMPLETED_JOB_AGE=7
MX_JOB_KEEP_RUN_NOW_HOURS=8

When running HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM) in an environment that contains a large number of WBEM managed systems, the completed job output might exceed several thousand files. This can result in HP SIM consuming a large amount of memory and disk space. In addition, task page interface slowdown or out of memory errors may occur.
Any ProLiant server running HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM) Version 5.2 (or earlier) in an environment with a large number of WBEM managed nodes.
A future version of HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM) will prevent this from occurring when running in an environment with a large number of WBEM nodes.
If this behavior is noted, the following workaround can be implemented to alleviate the large consumption of memory and disk space. The workaround adjusts the retention values for completed tasks and can be altered as desired to reduce resource consumption.
Note: This fix only applies to HP SIM instances which are managing a large number of WBEM nodes (maximum 5000) using WMI.
Add the following entries to the end of the MX.PROPERTIES file located in the Microsoft Windows directory \Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\config or in the Linux and HP-UX directory /etc/opt/mx/config:
MX_JOB_MAX_COMPLETED_JOBS_PER_TASK=3
MX_JOB_MAX_COMPLETED_JOB_AGE=7
MX_JOB_KEEP_RUN_NOW_HOURS=8
Note: The values recommended above are for greater than 1500 systems.
After the MX.PROPERTIES file has been modified, restart the HP SIM service to initiate the changes.
This advisory will be updated when additional information becomes available.
