CUCM 8.6 - LowVirtualMemory alert

We have two CUCM in our cluster on VM.  They both have 4 Gigs of RAM, in RTMT we are seeing  148 - 150 megs of free memory.  I need to confirm if this is acceptable.  If not where should I be looking next.

We also had a few LowVirtualyMemory starting last week.  The environment has 100 users, the only change made which was a week priory the alerts was, we added another Vcpu.  We only had one before.

If anyone has encountered this issue before or has any ideas please share.

CUCM 8.6 - LowVirtualMemory alert

Hi Ayaz,

we had a similar problem at our cluster and the problem seems to be due to the CUCM version, we had 8.6.2.20000-2 version and upgraded to 8.6.2.22900-9 and now everything is working fine. I thinks it's a known bug in the prior version, try upgrading to the newest version, and if that doesn't work try opening a TAC case. Upgrade worked for us.

CUCM 8.6 - LowVirtualMemory alert

Hello Ayaz,

First of all the the virtual memory usage going high is very normal in case of CUCM and it is acceptable as long as there is no production issue. I have seen usage going high as 98-99% and everything works fine without any issues.

Ususally Tomcat is always the highest consumer of memory so please check the process which is utilizing the highest memory first with " show process load memory".

Then check the number of active connections which CUCM is having and memory usage goes high if it is high and it happens generally when the CUCM has been up for a longer time, so you go for a reboot of the CUCM.

I would like to know if the there is enough free memory, or is it too low.  I don't want the system to crash if more memory is required.

Thanks,

Ayaz
