This article describes the issue when Windows Powershell Monitors intermittently return Out of Memory exceptions.



  • All versions of Windows
  • All versions of SAM


Powershell is running out of Memory for certain Powershell scripts.


Increase the amount of memory Powershell has by running the following command from a Powershell prompt:

set-item wsman:localhost\Shell\MaxMemoryPerShellMB {amount in MB}


To verify the current amount, run the following command:.

get-item wsman:localhost\Shell\MaxMemoryPerShellMB
