SYMPTOMS

When you run SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) packages, a memory leak may occur. To see this problem, select the Process performance object, and then monitor the Private Bytes counter of the MsDtsSrvr instance in System Monitor. You will notice that the count in the Private Bytes counter increases. The count increases until you stop and then restart the SSIS service.

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You are running a 64-bit version of SQL Server 2005. For example, you are running SQL Server 2005 Enterprise x64 Edition or SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition for Itanium-based Systems. This problem does not occur if you are running a 32-bit version of SQL Server 2005.
  • You run SSIS packages that are stored in the SSIS Package store.
