The MonitoringHost.exe process on the System Center Operations Manager 2007 root management server may consume more than 2 gigabytes of memory
Article ID: 943706 - View products that this article applies to.
You experience the following problems that are related to the OpsMgr SDK Service in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007.
Problem 1The MonitoringHost.exe process on the Systems Center Operations Manager 2007 root management server may consume more than 2 gigabytes (GB) of memory. You can see this symptom in Task Manager.
Problem 2A management pack in Systems Center Operations Manager 2007 converts OpsMgr SDK Service events to alerts. However, when you re-import the management pack, the events that have already been processed are processed again.
Problem 1 occurs because the OpsMgr SDK Service data source module does not limit the number of data items that are processed at a time. The data source module tries to read all pending data items from the database and to process the data items in a batch. The MonitoringHost.exe process may stop unexpectedly in response to an unhandled exception if too many data items have to be processed.
