Vertica stops responding when another application is running on the node.

The Vertica system is not responding or is running out of memory when there is another application running on the same node as Vertica.


  • Vertica assumes that all of the memory on the machine is available only for Vertica. If you are running another process on the machine, you need to reduce the maxmemorysize of the general pool to allow for another process. Change the general pool memory size from 95% to 70%. => ALTER RESOURCE POOL general maxmemorysize '70%';
