Error 10841



Message text

The value of parameter ’max memory’ ’%ld’ cannot be less than the ’total logical memory’ size ’%ld’. Please reconfigure ’max memory’ to be greater than or equal to the total logical memory required.


The max memory configuration parameter lets you establish a maximum setting for the amount of memory that can be allocated to Adaptive Server. The total logical memory configuration parameter is the sum of the memory required for all the sp_configure parameters; while it is required to be available, the total logical memory may or may not be in use at any given moment.

When Adaptive Server starts, it allocates memory needed for all nonconfigurable data structures and configurable parameters, including data and procedure caches. If you increase the server’s memory configuration, for example by adding a worker process pool, the amount of memory available to configure must be able to absorb the added pool. Put another way, the new total logical memory (incremented by the addition of the pool) must not exceed max memory. If it does, error 10841 is raised.


Reconfigure max memory to meet the new configuration requirements, or adjust other memory parameters so that they do not exceed the max memory limitation.
