Windows Desktop Heap memory has been depleted due to too many concurrently running policy instances and child processes.

Reduce the maximum number of concurrent policy instances that are running, or increase the amount of Desktop Heap that is available to each windows station on the affected Action Server.

More Information

To reduce the maximum number of concurrent policy instances that can be running on an Action Server follow the steps below:

  • On the Opalis Integration Server Management Server computer, open a Command Prompt and navigate to the installation folder of the Management Service (default path = C:\Program Files\Opalis Software\Opalis Integration Server\Management Service).
  • Execute the following command:

aspt.exe <ActionServerComputerName> <MaximumNumberOfPolicies>

  • Restart the OpalisActionService service on the affected Action Server computer.

To increase the Desktop Heap available to each windows station, please review the following article:
