Resource control

ON THIS PAGE

Resource control

You can set high and critical disk space and memory utilization thresholds.

Note  Disk space is checked only for the drive where the data folder resides.

Thresholds are calculated as a percentage of total capacity. So, for example, a disk space utilization threshold of 80% would mean that 20% of available disk space remains.

After setting the thresholds, you can click the New Notification button to define a notification that will be sent whenever a given threshold is exceeded and/or returns to normal.

Note:

Changes to resource control settings will not affect running tasks.

Disk space

In the High Disk Space Utilization Threshold section, specify the high disk space utilization threshold (in terms of percentage). When the threshold is reached, a notification will be sent (if defined).

In the Critical Disk Space Utilization Threshold section, specify the critical disk space utilization threshold (in terms of percentage). When the threshold is reached, all tasks will be stopped and a notification will be sent (if enabled). Replicate will resume the tasks automatically when there is sufficient disk space to do so.

System memory

Memory utilization is calculated using the following formula (note that “swap file” is used generically to refer to both page file memory on Windows and swap file memory on Linux):

(used_swap_file + used_physical_memory) /
(total_swap_file + total_physical_memory) * 100

Example:

(5 GB + 5 GB) / (10 GB + 10 GB) * 100 = 50%

In the High System Memory Utilization Threshold section, specify the high system memory utilization threshold (in terms of percentage). When the threshold is reached, a notification will be sent (if defined).

In the Critical System Memory Utilization Threshold section, specify the critical system memory utilization threshold (in terms of percentage). When the threshold is reached, Replicate will start stopping tasks and a notification will be sent (if enabled). The tasks will be resumed automatically when there is sufficient memory to do so.
