I have been fighting my server for over a week now trying every tweak I
can think of with still no stable success.
My Server is a Dell 4600 w/ 4Gb Ram running GW7, Gwava 3.6, Zen7,
eTrust 7.1, ArcServe 11.1 Sp1, NDPS, Apache2, Tomcat, etc.

I have run SEG.nlm and configured server will all of the MEMCALC.exe
recommendations- many times with various configurations. (below current
NLM Memory = 1233289216
NLMHWM Memory = 1325375488
DS Memory = 218662670
Phys Memory = 4155981824
UAS Memory = 555503616

Physical memory (Bytes) : 4,155,981,824
NLM Footprint (Bytes) : 1,233,289,216
NLM High Water (Bytes) : 1,325,375,488
UAS (Bytes) : 555,503,616
DS Foot print (Bytes) : 218,662,670

set auto tune server memory=off
set file cache maximum size=1950351360
set fs cache pool minimum pages=453980
set fs cache pool desired pages=524288
set fs cache pool lots of pages=524288
set vm cache pool percentage=5
set vm cache pool maximum pages percentage=5


add "-u555503616" to the server line

I have tweaked the Betreive BTI.cfg file with many different
settings... 128Mb ram(abend in betrieve) , 256Mb ram(abend in
betrieve), 384Mb Ram and 512Mb ram.

I have backrev'd the INTRLEAV.nlm to pre SP1. (because of random abends
in the new intrleav.nlm)

I have made many tweaks to the real time scanning engine so processes
are excluded from being scanned during backup, etc.
My last few attemps for server stability during backup, I have even
unloaded realtime scanning (which does speed up backup throughput by a
factor of 5) and the backup does complete and then the server randomly
locks minutes or hours later.

I have made all the recommended tweaks to ArcServe from CA and from
users in this news group. (bti.cfg changes, backrev of intrleav.nlm,

I have restarted my server over 20 times in the last 7 days trying
eveything I can think of and monitoring memory and "available logical

Even doing all of the above I am still receiving random abends.

I have seen abends in Betrieve, Intrleav.nlm, portal.nlm, server.exe,
fstape.nlm, and the list goes on.... just when I think I have mastered
this the server abends again or simply HARD LOCKS (no ping, etc.)

Attached is the Segstats.txt used with the memcalc.exe and also
abend.txt listing the last few abends chopped down for size.

Any help is appreciated since I am going nuts- this is a production
server that is used 24/7 and must be up at least 10hrs daily for work.
