  1. Everything seems OK. Thanks for input.
  2. So far so good…the SMReset seems to solve the memory issues I was having. A few more days of testing on the server will confirm it hopefully.
  3. Hmmmm. OK, Maybe I will see if restarting the script engine is needed or does the trick if SMReset doesn't. I am trying that tonight. Will report back. Thanks And darn. I just noticed I posted this in the wrong forum. Sorry!!! Should be in the Scriptmaster forum.
  4. Should I reset the plugin occasionally with smreset?
  5. I am running a server script periodically (every hour lets say) which does some database maintenance, uploads some files, etc. I do this on a number of Filemaker Servers (latest server version running on Windows machines) without problems…except for one server. On this server I use scriptmaster to up load some large files into containers as they are generated from scientific instruments. The problem is that the server runs seems to run out of RAM memory after a "few" days. I think this is the only thing that this server does differently than the other 4 servers and feel that this is the problem. My question is…is there a way to "flush" memory used by the plugin or by the FM server. Has anyone else experienced something similar or am I barking up the wrong tree? Thanks.
  6. Ah, Thanks Win, that is what I was finding but assumed/hoped that I was doing something wrong and that I could designate the path for the container individually. Thanks again. However to explore this a bit more…once I set up the non-default location for the databases…the RC data can then be anywhere I set in the server settings for the container data?
  7. Hey Wim, Can I ask a follow up question? I seem to not be understand something. We are running a windows server with FM14 (all up to date). The databases are stored in the "usual" place (filewin:/e:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/) but I would like the container data of one field to be stored on another local drive. I could move the database file with that container to the new location and "Enable additional database folder 1" with the new location (filewin:/f:/Databases2/) but can I just set the container to store that container data in this location? I thought with the new versions you could but maybe I am wrong…or am not getting the settings correctly set in all the various locations!
  8. BUT still no way to tell if a Jar is loaded right?
  9. Ah, I am sure I am loading it each time as I thought I had to because I thought that on the server each time a timed script is run that it is a "new" session and everything needs to be like it is the first time…UGH. I am sure I read that somewhere at least as far as temp files are concerned that the server writes in the temp path. Darn, that explains a lot and I guess I don't need to register java code every time either? And yeah it would be nice to use SMGetLoadedJars to check whether the jars are loaded already so they don't accumulate!!! And thanks as always, John. Always a big help.
  10. We are using SM (version 4.42) on a windows server and running a bunch of timed scripts to do various things. What is happing is that the server's HD is filling up with copies of the Jar files that are being used by the java code. For instance we are running a timed scripted every 15 minutes and a new instance of the Jar files is being created each time (and the old ones are NOT being deleted) at C:\Users\BCGCFMSvc\AppData\Local\Temp\ScriptMaster_bcgcfmsvc\Scriptmaster2975213099741919606commons-io-2.4.jar Any ideas why these are collecting and what to do?

  12. Well I should add that it seems to be related to size. Small files download just fine…large ones (>5MB) never start downloading
  13. Thanks. Appreciate the info!
  14. I have heard that tabs on the a layout can really impact performance when using WebDirect as all the info in each tab has to be rendered even when the tab isn't displayed (correct?). How about when using the client? Is this the case with the FM application? Do many tabs with, say portals on them, impact performance in the same way? Or are those tabs only rendered when selected using the client application?
  15. And I should have mentioned that we have had to re-installed FM14 twice in the past month bring back up the web components. Restarting was not enough. Something gets corrupted.
