Your server has run out of memory

Recommended Posts

Over the past few months I've noticed that memory usage of my server would slowly increase over time. The culprit appears to be Plex as restarting it will lower the usage from 60-70% usage to 13%, but I'm not sure what specifically is causing the memory usage to expand. 

I only recently noticed that Fix Common Problems flagged the memory leak. 



Out Of Memory errors detected on your server

Your server has run out of memory, and processes (potentially required) are being killed off. You should post your diagnostics and ask for assistance on the unRaid forums


I've attached my logs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Unraid OS is in RAM, so any path that isn't actual storage is RAM. Typically storage is some path in some subfolder of /mnt (but not /mnt itself).


The usual reason for a docker to write into RAM is a container path that is mapped to a host path that isn't actual storage.

Nothing obvious in the screenshot.

Do you actually use the DLNA feature of Plex?
