Edit: Now I know how you got those pagefile-related answers! >smile< Sorry, but you can't relocate the HIBERFIL.SYS file to any partition other than the boot partition. This is because it's needed very early in to boot process to resume from hiberation and the boot loader (NTLDR) code, needing to be compact and optimized, doesn't have the ability to ...

Generally there is no reason not to use it. Just keep in mind, that there are cases, that it won't work as expected. These apply both for hibernation and suspend (to RAM): some applications are not hibernation-aware. Eg. games tend to crash. some WiFi drivers have trouble with hibernation. networked applications loose connection and most do not ...

No it's not possible to move the hibernation file (hiberfil.sys). It must be on the system partition.

I don't have any issues with using WoL on a Dell R300 running VMware ESXi and that definitely doesn't support hibernation. Enable WoL in the BIOS, power it off and give it a go. If WoL proves awkward the 2900 also supports remote power management via IPMI - if you download the Dell IPMI command line tools and enable the BMC you can check the power state of ...

I use XP Pro workstations and VMWare, and I suspend/hibernate the workstation regularly with no special attention paid to the VMs. The only adverse effect I've ever seen has been the workstations time getting further screwed up (For application reasons, I can't have them sync their time to anything).

If your computer is capable of S3 Sleep (ultra-low power consumption) there isn't a compelling reason for a desktop to be placed in hibernation. Hibernation has a high user impact, as it generally takes 1+ minute to wake up. If you're using a laptop, and you need to use full-disk encryption to protect customer or other data, you absolutely must enable ...

If you have any apps or drivers that are leaking memory, you will eventually run very short. This is a non-ideal world problem that may occur. Under ideal circumstances, everything should resume as usual and you can repeatedly hibernate indefinitely.

If you have a dual boot environment and you allow the other OS, say a Linux variant, access to the NTFS partitions, then hibernate is astonishingly dangerous. If you hibernate your device, and then reboot into Linux, the NTFS file system is invariably corrupted with real data loss. Otherwise, I use Suspend to RAM on both Windows and SLED Linux without ...

Needs some extra hard disk space to dump the memory May cause some IP related problems specially with DHCP

I assume you are talking about Windows saving the current memory contents in a hibernate file. My first thought was, sure, just boot that machine with a different OS (may be linux or even a second Windows) and copy the file to a archive. However, you probably also need to save thw pagefile than too. I am not sure what else you need. So the safest way would ...

The article you linked to is in error. This is a feature expected to be a part of 2012R2. That section of the article should be labeled as requiring R2.

Depends on the machine - Solaris on some SPARC systems supports suspend-to-disk via the sys-suspend command, but Solaris on x86/x64 systems does not.

Could be a few things. Most obvious would be your TMP_TABLE_SIZE variable is to small and MySQL must create the temporary table on disk and not in memory. Using the following query will show if MySQL is creating disk tmp tables. mysql> SHOW STATUS LIKE '%tmp%'; Other issue could be that the table that should go to a temp table is BINARY or TEXT table ...

I don't know this Dell system, but in all systems I know, you need to turn on WOL in the BIOS. Hibernating Windows would then help with the boot time, but is not required per se.

Reasons can be really-really different. Once I had a dumb eternal while-loop in simple model. Think Fusion Reactor is what you need. It helped me to resolve the very similar issue.

Did you place the Oracle JDBC Jar in Tomcat's common/lib folder? Since Tomcat does not support Oracle DB connections out of the box, it may simply be missing the proper library. Your resource definition and application configuration look fine to me.

Drawbacks I've found is that sometimes the machine is insanely slow for awhile after coming back from hibernation, some machines won't come back at all from hibernation, and some apps will crash after resuming (things that use CUDA, like seti@home seem to be a problem, and sometimes virtual machines under the hibernated OS have issues). Generally speaking ...

I don't think anybody will have the answer to your problem, but only leads & ideas. Here are some: you need robots that will check the health of each part of your service. (testing a single connection to your database, getting a static web page, getting a dynamic web page...). This way, you'll see what breaks first or response time increase. do you ...

The standard answer in IT, it depends, applies here. Cursory searching shows people who had no problems, as well as people who had their guest VMs hang. My best bet is to try it and see; rollback is your friend here.

If you are running Vista or later, the bcdedit can edit the hibernation file's location. I have moved it to another partition successfully.

I don't know about emulating it, but there are "enthusiasts" who have gotten it working. This is a violation of the license agreement, I'd guess, on Windows XP Embedded. You can find a cached version of an "enthusiast" procedure here (thanks, Wayback Machine!): http://web.archive.org/web/20071012082424/http://mason.gmu.edu/~sfiorito/eXPinstall.htm

It is a function of Xp Embedded's enhanced write filter. If you google for enhanced write filter then you will get numerous sets of instructions of how to copy the relevant files over into standard XP. Alternatively there is a commercial product which builds on the same thing and can add these features to standard XP legitimately (I think MS licenced EWF ...

One of the drawbacks of suspend is that if the power is lost during suspend, your machine state is gone. If you insist on using hibernation, keep in mind that hibernating 2-4 GB machine it may take quite a lot of time to save and read hibernation file. In my case,defragmenting disk and then defragmenting hibernation file helped me tremendously when disk was ...

Off the top of my head, I'd say no. You're losing the TCP connection so X shuts down the session as if you'd been knocked off the network. If you want a persistent connection, look into VNC or NX (FreeNX or NoMachine). I'm too new to post links, but you can use Google on either option and you'll get usable results.

If you install the lambda probe webapp (get the 1.7 beta) you can get thread-level monitoring; keeping an eye on this will tell you when threads are stuck waiting for the database, as well as a host of other useful diagnostics. It's a little old but still works fine in recent tomcat releases.

If serving the static pages does not require any database access, then it seems unlikely that it is a database resource issue as such. It may be that all of the pooled threads are stuck somewhere, such as waiting for the database drive or in a deadlock. The first thing I'd do is get a snapshot of the stack traces with jstack. You can further look at the ...

Just wanted to add that it's quite common for table locking issues with MyISAM tables can easily cause DB connections to pile up and cause the application waiting for those results to sit and sit. You may want to check out the MySQL process list to see if there are a lot of queries sitting in a locked state. # mysqladmin processlist -- or -- mysql> ...

One reason not to let your computer go into hibernation is if you want to access it remotely (Remote Desktop.) If you have a VPN connection, you'll have to reconnect after waking up the computer.

When I put my host PC to sleep with VMs active in VirtualBox, they're automatically paused before the host system goes to sleep. As a result, the guests recover from a sleep/wake cycle exactly as they do from being paused. (Occasionally I have trouble with the clock not updating, but this is likely an issue with the VirtualBox guest additions.) A bit of ...
