The user has multiple cm's/dm's running with and without timos in an environment with ROC synchronization done and timos is going down with 'out of memory' every 2 days.

Some errors are coming in dm_timos log and memory usage of timos is going very high in 3 days, though the http memory monitor probes shows only 0.4gb.  But in log, it is giving warning about reaching memory limit.

Below are error messages from dm_timos:

Filename =dm_timos_consile.log
See the following error:
/export/home/brm/opt/portal/7.3.1/bin/dm_timos: An error occurred during processing.

Originator : timosMgr.MemoryMonitor
Destination :
Arguments : SHUTTING DOWN:

State : false
Severity : CRITICAL
Thread : 1

 From dm_timos.log:

15.10.2009 11:25:32 brm01 dm_timos DMT CRITICAL [T:1] 00512 - (timosMgr.MemoryMonitor) SHUTTING DOWN: Reached specified memory usage limit. Usage: 13598720 KB, available: 14188544 KB


The user has multiple cm's/dm_oracle's configured in the system. Customer Creation/Adjustment/Billing through one cm/dm_oracle and realtime rating done through cm/dm_timos/dm_oracle

All the processes are running on the same machine.

Configuration is something like this

1. CM 1 : Listens on port 11960 and is connected to DM_ORACLE 1.
2. DM_ORACLE 1 : Listens on 12950 and is connected to database with ROC synchronized to DM_TIMOS (entry in the pin.conf as - dm dm_pointer ip 127.x.x.x 12960).
    CM1 is used for Billing/Adjustment/Customer Creation etc.
3. CM2 : Listens on 11961 and is connected to DM_TIMOS.
4. DM_TIMOS : Listens on 12960 and is connected to DM_ORACLE 2.
5. DM_ORACLE 2 : Listens on 12951 and is connected to the database. CM2 : is used for only real time rating

The problem is, DM_TIMOS is going down throwing out of memory error in 2 days time even the system has enough memory.
