I was wondering if I can limit the amount of RAM that QlikView Server uses? I have limited the working set which I thought it would have limited it but it still seems to use all of the memory available.
We have two applications on the server at present. QlikView has a habit of using all the RAM and in turn crashing the other non qlikview application. So yes I agree its obviously better to let QlikView use as much as it likes, I need to leave about 20% free for the other application.
This is never advisable to run other non-qlikview applications on the same server as QlikView. QlikView is an in-memory analysis technology; memory requirements for QlikView products are directly related to the quantity of data being analyzed. I would recommend you move the other application to another server.
The other application is part of a solution that makes use our QlikView solution. The cost of separation of the solution is quite sufficient for us, so we hoped to increase the RAM and number of CPU's, then limit how much QlikView can use of it.
Is it right to assume that there is no way of limiting the amount of RAM QlikView can use then?
