HPSIM steals all my RAM

running the hp sim on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux server. things have been going well until the last couple of days. The hpsim has been taking all my systems resources to the point that the server is not accessible. The load goes through the roof and all the ram and swap space is used. killing the hpsim the server is working correctly, has anyone seen this before?

Re: HPSIM steals all my RAM


There were some problems with the storage agents in older releases of the hp sim agents.

Are you referring to the hpsim management station or the agents?

Which version of HPSIM or hpasm?
Which Red Hat Enterprise release?
Which hardware?
rpm -qa | grep hpasm ...
for the agents to get the version

Re: HPSIM steals all my RAM

I manually uninstalled and reinstalled. I was using the management station and it was running on RHEL 4.1.
