Other memory

P: n/a
Had an interesting memory problem at a client site.

DB2 for Windows V8 VP 7a Express
on Win NT SP6.

Very small application getting ready for production. Database memory
kept increasing and eventually crashed server every 10 days.

dbmtrk showed "Other memory" the culprit. Couldn't find any way of
finding out what "Other memory" was.

It turns out for older Windows operating systems, there is a handle leak
every time the database is deactivated/activated. This doesn't occur
with Windows 2003. IBM support tells me this will be fixed in FP10.

The interim solution is to activate the databases after any kind of
restart of the DB2 instances.
