Data.dat file grows or fills with data unexpectedly or System Resources slow down
PowerChute Business Edition
All supported OS
PowerChute Business Edition Server
Under extremely rare circumstances, the "data.dat" file located in the "PowerChute Business Edition/Server" directory of the PowerChute Business Edition "Server" piece may rapidly grow to a large size. This may lead to the server running slower than normal or, in some cases, a system crash. Only machines running the "Server" piece are affected, the "Agent" and "Console" pieces of the application remain unaffected. This problem only occurs in version 6.1.
An immediate workaround is to delete the "data.dat" file located in the "PowerChute Business Edition/Server" directory.
The issue had been addressed back in version 6.1.1 of PowerChute Business Edition. The latest version of PowerChute Business Edition is 9.2 which may be obtained from APC's Software Downloads page at https://www.apcc.com/tools/download.
