[CLOSED]what "ibengine.exe" actually do?

hi,

I know when we installed webFOCUS with Hyperstage it will have "ibengine.exe" running in the process, but what does it do exactly? (I think when hyperstage is try to load data into another file or location will using this process to do the job, correct me if I'm wrong)

reason I ask, is because sometime "ibengine.exe" consume huge amount of RAM(like 70% or more) and it cause webFOCUS not function. Wanna find out why it take so many RAM and how to prevent it consume so much memory?

even the VM have 128GB memory it still shoot up high to 97%~99% because of "ibengine.exe"

This is related to Hyperstage and you ought to open a ticket with IB tech support. They're much better at running traces and diagnostics to help you with a fix.

IBENGINE is the Hyperstage engine.
Best practices is that the Hyperstage Reporting Server should be on its own box.
By default, Hyperstage looks at Total Physical Memory and reserves 75% for its use.
But, you shouldn't see that amount in Task Manager when you startup Hyperstage.
This Memory allocation can be adjusted by the ServerMainHeapSize setting in the infobright.cnf file.

Are you saying that it's actually showing as used Memory?
If so, are you using Hyperstage?
When you load data, are you using Bulkload, which is recommended, or INSERT/UPDATE.

Hi Efrem,

- As we monitoring the resource via "Task Manager" that we find out IBENGINE is taking approximately around 70% or more, and with rest of application running sum up 97% of memory which it cause WebFOCUS to malfunction
- Yes we using Hyperstage
- Bulkload as always

The ServerMainHeapSize setting in the infobright.cnf file is used to control how much memory Hyperstage reserves at startup.
The setting will probably be commented out with a '#'.
That would mean it will apply the default which is reserve 75% of Physical Memory for Hyperstage.

Once you change this setting, you will need to restart the Hyperstage Reporting Server.

Thanks for the reply, will try be careful to play around infobright.cnf and see if it help to control it.
