For a long time we experience Crashed and errors of the SQL Backup GUI. The last weeks te problems seem to increase, because we nog can't run the SQL backup GUI for more then a few minutes.
The error message we get is : Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException'
When we get this message the Redgate.SQLBackup.UI procces uses bout 1.5 GB (this is a very huge amount of memory for a GUI application!!), so it seems to het the limit for 32 bit DotNet proccesses.
The problem probably occours because we backup a big number of databases (about 40.000 databases, in 10 instances), but because this number is still increasing (about 3.000 new databases every month) we really need a solution for this problem.
The best solution would be a more economical memory usage of the GUI application, but the solution could als be a 64 bit build of the GUI application.
Our management runnig the GUI software has 24 GB of memory with about 10 GB free, so total memory should not be an issue.
Al servers and the management station are running the latest build of SQL backup (188.8.131.52), but w also experienced this issue in earlyer builds
