Reports Server Taking Java Excessive Memory On The Server (Doc ID 1437068.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.1.4.0 and later
Generic UNIX

Symptoms

Running a  report with an infinite recursive procedure, the report engine process(rwEng-0) allocates more and more memory (up to the available memory on the server).
Using the same report in 10g will generate errors after some point and will not grab all the memory of the server.
With Reports 11g the reports hangs and does not generate any output.
