Overview

This article describes how to adjust the amount of memory that can be allocated to the Flow Storage (Fastbit) Database.

Environment

NTA 4.x (64-bit)

Steps

Warning: SolarWinds strongly recommends that you only edit the ServerConfig.xml file as instructed. Any additional modifications may result in system performance issues or may create an error state.

  1. Open the c:\ProgramData\Solarwinds\NTA\FlowStorage\ServerConfig.xml file in a text editor.
  2. Locate the following line and modify the maximum memory utilization:
<viewBytesMaximum>80%</viewBytesMaximum> 

Notes: 

  • The default maximum memory utilization is set to 80%. It means that at most, 80% of whole system memory will be used by the FSDB.
  • You can specify the value in MB. For example, <viewBytesMaximum>1024</viewBytesMaximum> means 1GB of the limit.
  1. Restart NTA Flow Storage Service for changes to take effect.
