During normal operation, the Message Queue broker consumes a modest amount of memory. However, during idsync resync operations, the broker’s memory requirements increase. If the broker reaches its memory limit, undelivered messages will accumulate, the idsync resync operations will slow down dramatically or even, and Identity Synchronization for Windows may be unresponsive.
When the broker enters a low-memory state, the following messages will appear in its log:
[03/Nov/2003:14:07:51 CST] [B1089]: In low memory condition, Broker is attempting to f ree up resources [03/Nov/2003:14:07:51 CST] [B1088]: Entering Memory State [B0024]: RED from previous state [B0023]: ORANGE - current memory is 1829876K, 90% of total memory
To avoid a low memory state, take the following steps:
Increase the broker’s memory limit to 1 or 2 GB, as explained in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Release Notes.
During an idsync resync operation, keep the log level set to INFO. Changing the log level to FINE or higher increases the load of the broker as more log messages are sent to the central logger.
Run the idsync resync command for one synchronization user list at a time.
