Yesterday afternoon we got a BAD MEMORY state alert on our main server, it eventually bended due to having no memory availalbe.

After restart everything was normal, then about 20-30 minutes later it happened again. This time it recovered, then lost them again eventually the low memory caused mutiple abends, all within 1 hour.

After bringing it up again things were stable all night until early this morning. Upon talking with the CEO I found out that they were printing a large graphic/picture heavy Holiday letter to the color printer/copier, which uses NDPS. They wanted 50 copies of this letter. While there were no error messages anywhere on the system other than the memory related ones, we are trying to verify if this could cause such a problem, without duplicating it!!! And how we can check for that problem next time.
