Last updated on MAY 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Guided Search / Oracle Commerce Experience Manager - Version 11.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

During normal traffic the Dgraph process is growing until it uses all of the RAM on the host and eventually crashes.  This happens even with a very large amount of available physical RAM and a small on-disk index, e.g. 40 GB RAM with a 2 GB RAM on-disk index.
