IBM ServeRAID Manager Agent – memory leak


  • server IBM x3950
  • Windows 2003 x64, SP2
  • IBM ServeRAID Manager 8.40

While working on a couple of Oracle servers running on IBM x3950, I noticed extremely large memory consumption of the RAIDSERV.EXE process that belongs to “IBM ServeRAID Manager Agent”. It’s a 32-bit process running inside WOW64. On one server 800MB was allocated to raidserv.exe and 1600MB on another. Immediately after service startup, 22MB memory allocation was observed, then slowly increasing. Can’t tell for sure how fast/slow memory leaking is progressing – I’ll know in a couple of days.

  1. Memory leak per day is approximately 12MB. Way too much, for now I’ll stop the service.
