Server Out Of Memory

Server Out of Memory

There is no memory on the server to run your program. Please contact your administrator with this problem.

I have got the above exception when trying to downlaod a large flash file to local drive.which is about 198 MB. After following some blogs and IISRESET on the server caused to get rid of the exception.

Start --> Run --> IISRESET

I believe IISRESET causes to clean up the temporary file storage and also cleans up the application pool which get rids of the Out Of Memory exception and also the server that we had has POC server which is very old.

Please feel free to comment on this post so that i can update this post effectively.




  1. It only works for temporary. After 1 hours it again throws the same exception. Is there any other work around?

  2. Sachin,

    For this out of memory issues there are lots of factors which are eating up the server resources. Couple of things that can be considered
    - the type of Operating system on the servers (32 bit o/s are most likely to have the Out of memory issues as the usage becomes high. )
    - Any custom solutions that are deployed
    - The amount of RAM on the servers

    Hope this helps. Ping me back for any questions.
