QlikView Server memory spike when there is high concurrent session

Hi All,

I observed that QlikView Server memory usage spiked when number of concurrent sessions spiked. Would like understand how concurrent sessions impact memory usage in QlikView servers. Based on concurrent session figure below, can we explain that there were 36 new sessions access at the same times?

Hi @boonhaw_tan,

Have a look at the Qlik technical brief The Qlik Associative Engine memory management and CPU usage which describes how the Qlik Associative Engine uses system resources.  First, the QVW users open is loaded into cache and then each user's selections are cached as well.

Thanks for response Chip, I will look into Qlik technical brief.

Meanwhile, I would like understand a bit more on concurrent session. Example the figure shown below, can it explain as there are 36 new sessions access at the same time at 4am? The selection of each users are cached and cause memory spiked?

To understand why there are "unexpected" sessions, you can start by checking the session logs.

It will log start/stop time, uses name, client used etc.

 

The log can be a bit hard to read, so I usually copy the content to an excel file
