SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You host active server pages (ASP webpages) on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device that includes ASP web components. For example, you configure the device to be an ASP web server.
  • Some ASP webpages use implicit type conversion. For example a webpage includes the following Visual Basic script code to do implicit type conversion from an integer to a string:
    DIM varValue
    varValue = 0
    Response.Write(varValue)
  • These webpages have the auto-refresh property configured. For example, one webpage includes the following HTML attribute to refresh the webpage every second:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="1">
  • Many client requests are sent to the device to visit the webpages.

In this scenario, the device may experience an "out of memory" (OOM) issue.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because a memory leak occurs when there is an implicit type conversion. Also, the HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" attribute may accumulate the memory leak.
