Out of Join Memory

Asteroid

Hi All,

I've been running a workflow regularly, with success, on an Alteryx server but last night it failed with the following message from the server.  Note that the "join" that exists, simply does a record position join, so I didn't think it would use much memory.  Can anyone recommend a setting that could correct this?

is it possible that other jobs on the server were using "too much" memory?  Do you know the total memory on the machine, the number of allowed processes to run, the memory for worker Max sort join memory, engine sort/join memory?

 

is the engine/sortjoin memory less than the worker/sort/join memory?

Have a look at this links, they explain how Alteryx uses memory and where to change the settings, i had a read when configuring the scheduler on my desktop.

@MarqueeCrew they told me that they ave 4164MB of memory on the server.  I will suggest looking at the engine/sort/memory as I have not had an issue running this workflow locally on my laptop.

@flipperdm,

 

general rule


for an appropriate setting is to be ½ the amount of system memory available,
divided by the number of simultaneous workflows allowed to run.
