You receive the “out of memory” error message when you try to export to circular files in Windows Server 2008 or in Windows Vista
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.
- You try to export to some circular files that are used by the Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) feature.
In this scenario, you cannot export to these files, and you receive the following error message:
out of memory
For example, consider the following scenario:
- You run the following command to set the cluster log size to 512 megabytes (MB):
cluster log /size:512
- You run the following command to export the trace to a text file:
cluster log /g
In this scenario, you receive the error message.
