Wowza Community

banned ???


I posted a question regarding RAM usage reported in the wowza web manager and apparently I got banned :mad: …

May be my post was considered as spam since I linked to two capture screens of the wowza web manager ???

Anyway, I don’t understand what is going on.

No reason was given; the following message appears when I login.


You have been banned for the following reason:

No reason was specified.

Date the ban will be lifted: Never


Username is phamkv.

The post after which I was banned is as follows:



I have a huge memory used, most is cached.

I would like to know if this is expected behaviour with wowza 4.

I found several threads reporting similar issue but couldn’t determine

if the issue is solved, normal or not.…s-getting-full…a-memory-usage

Thanks for any help!


(I removed the links to my website with the two screen captures).

Thanks for any help on that matter (the ban).

I contacted the support for clarification.

EDIT: support unbanned me.


Please note that Total Memory is referring to the memory of the entire server, the memory Wowza is using is the Wowza Heap which will likely be quite low.

You could try getting a process output and see what processes are running on the server.

What OS are you using on the server?

Under Linux if you access a file then it will store some/all of it in memory if it is available to do so, only when memory is needed it removes it.

For example

:       total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem: 10225612    5122476    5103136          0     157464    4525664
-/+ buffers/cache:     439348    9786264
Swap:      2097148      66828    2030320

You can see here that 4525664 is used as cached space.

As this is being used Wowza will show this in the Total Memory as used.
