NDMP MA out of memory.
BMA-NDMP@xxx.com "Tape_CIFS_1" Time: 05.08.2020 10:31:42
RAM on MA server is 64 GB which is enough for backup
The problem was due to the backup need handle a huge number of files
The internal buffers that hold catalog information prior to writing to history was set to default (5) hence it causes issues.
OB2NDMPCATQUESIZE=1 as this backup contains huge number of files (80 millions)
OB2NDMPMEMONLY=1 as this server has much free ram
OB2BTREEORDER=31: help us reduce the memory consumption of BMA
# Default: 5
# NDMP MA-specific environment variable.
# This variable is used to fine-tune memory and disk consumption and overall
# performance of the NDMP backup. When the variable is set to default, the NDMP MA
# can process up to 20 million files (in one backup specification) if sufficient
# system resources are available (approximately 1.9 GB of system memory and 2.8 GB of
# disk space). If sufficient system memory is available and the number of files in a
# backup specification is less than 20 million, the variable can be set to a higher
# value. Increasing the value of the variable will increase the performance of
# NDMP backups to a certain extent. The value of the variable represents the number of
# internal buffers that hold catalog information prior to writing it to file history
# swap files. Memory allocation overhead in kilobytes can be calculated by
# multiplying the value of the variable by 512.
