NetWare Open Enterprise Server 6.5 Support Pack 6
NSS.NLM Version 3.25 October 6, 2006

I am using the software based mirroring in OES to mirror all partitions
to a FalconStor IPStor iSCSI disk-based backup appliance.

Ever since we configured this, some of the partitions stop syncing due
to Cache Memory Allocator errors. We have had to restart all 3 NetWare
servers once a week to correct this. After the restart the partitions
sync back up properly.

This past weekend after restarting each server I started tracking the
Memory Fragmentation and Module Allocation in Novell Remote Manager each
morning. On all servers the allocation for the NSS.NLM module increases
every day. For example on one server is went from 95,330,304 to
198,254,592 after just one day. After another day went by it increased
to 210,460,672. It is similar on all 3 servers. I suspect we will need
to restart the servers again this weekend.

Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.
