Memory filling up and causing issues

Recommended Posts

Recently I've been dealing with a few weird issues with my server. Recently I figured out it was a result of running out of memory - but I'm not sure how that makes any sense.


For example, today I was trying to convert an 800gb VDHX to QCOW2. About 2 hours in, the process stated that I was out of space. I checked used ram and it was very high, >99%. The rest of my server started to act bizarre, refusing to load menus and dropping or ignoring tasks. 


I have 256GBs of ram. From what I understand, unraid is supposed to use ram as a cache temporarily, but flush as necessary. I have >20TB available so space on disk should not be an issue. Why would unraid not flush ram properly or at least transfer the process to disk space smoothly?
