ESXi Running out of Ram with scaleio?

Jump to solution

Greetings Experts,

Has anyone seen this with vSphere 6.0? Not sure if i'm running into a bug memory leak, but all my esxi host eventually run out of ram/heap and VM's fail to start and rescan storage devices fail to detect new scaleio volumes.

Any help will be much appreciated!

Looks like the fix for this will be available in December.

Per KB https://support.emc.com/kb/209541, there is an issue with ESXi 6.0 when using the ScaleIO volume driver.

this is a freshly installed scaleio and esxi 6.0 system.

I noticed that I couldn't start up any more VM's and scan for new scaleio volumes.
