Maximo7.5 server crashes with Out Of Memory exceptions when fetching a large number of records from SQL Server.
When fetching a large number of records ( eg: around a million ) , the Maximo server freezes and eventually crashes and one can see Out of Memory exceptions and SQL Server jdbc exceptions in the application server logs.
This has so far been reported from Maximo 7.5 environments using SQL Server only.
This is caused by the way the new SQL Server jdbc driver used in Maximo 7.5 handles the records fetched from the database.
