    Getting error: Process 21724 failed to create IPC queue __FCS_REGISTRY__ : Failed to allocate shared

    bobakb Community Member

      FMIS 4.5 is giving this error in core log file:

       

      Process 21724 failed to create IPC queue __FCS_REGISTRY__ : Failed to allocate shared memory.

       

      Restarting FMIS doesn't seem to help, I have to physically restart the server.

       

      Server has 8 GB RAM. 'freemem' report:

       

                   total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached

      Mem:       8164972    4622744    3542228          0    1197448    1851580

      -/+ buffers/cache:    1573716    6591256

      Swap:     10217332          0   10217332

       

      What is this error about and are there any settings I can change to allocate FMIS more memory?

       

      Thanks.

          can you paste the output of:

           

          su -c "ulimit -a" ams

           

           

          replace ams with the username of the account youre using to run the media server as.

           

           

          it should look similar to:

           

          root@ns1 [~]# su -c "ulimit -a" ams

            We just inreased the RAM from 8GB to 16GB and I think it's helped get rid of this error. FMS was installed as root so: here is the output of your request:

             

            su -c "ulimit -a" root

             

            core file size          (blocks, -c) 0
