dtserver.ini memory unsupported

Hello,

I’m reading the dynaTrace upgrade to 6.2 and I’m confused
about the section about dtserver.ini.

It is mentioned that the value of memory is unsupported.

Does it mean that the -memory parameter that replaced the XmS and XmX does not require a value?

Thank you.

Hi, I'm assuming you're referring to the following page:


https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/...


And I'm assuming you're talking about the following section:


"Review your Server sizing by contacting support beforehand, if upgrading from:

≤ 5.6 and in dtserver.ini the -Xmx value is >14GB


≥ 6.0 and in dtserver.ini or dfrontendserver.ini the value of memory is unsupported"


This does not mean that the "memory" parameter is unsupported. It means that if the
value of the "memory" parameter is equal to "unsupported", then you must contact support before migrating.


In other words, if your dtserver.ini contains the following lines:


(...)

-memory

unsupported

(...)

Then you need to open a case and review your sizing before migrating.

Hi @GABRIEL P.

Okay, that makes more sense now.

And if I have the following:

- memory

small

is "small" a new way to assign values instead of numbers? Or I need to use:

- memory2G

Thank you!

Hello @Nada B.,

You understood very well, the new way is to use the memory is the following way:

-memory

xlarge

You don't need to change the settings manually in the .ini files, because once you will change the sizing from Settings > Dynatrace Server > Settings, it will automatically change.

HI Nada,

There is another option, you can also put like this if you are not sure how much memory will be used as per the envrionment.

-memory

-unsupported

-xms-.....G

-xmz-.....G

it depends how much server is having.
