Restjavad restarts frequently due to OutOfMemory error.


-- BIG-IP system with no extra memory given to restjavad. -- The configuration contains a large number objects.


To workaround the issue you need to give restjavad extra memory. To do so please perform the following steps: 1. On GUI go to System :: Resource Provisioning. The line for Management has a drop-down box for Small, Medium, or Large. Set this to Large. 2. Connect to CLI. Run the following commands: tmsh modify sys db restjavad.useextramb value true 3. Restart restjavad processes. bigstart restart restjavad
