Warning: "insufficient free space available after evicting expired cache entries" in TDM Portal Startup log


Article ID: 212706


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


In the CA TDM Portal Startup.log we are seeing the below warnings. Can we make any changes to stop the warnings or we can ignore those warnings.

FINEST|15572/0|21-04-13 22:13:21|WARNING: Unable to add the resource at [/WEB-INF/classes/config/] to the cache for web application [/TestDataManager] because there was insufficient free space available after evicting expired cache entries - consider increasing the maximum size of the cache


Release : 4.8+

Component : CA Agile Requirements Designer - TMX Script Generator


These warnings are from the Tomcat server used by the TDM portal. This warning says Tomcat is unable to reach its target cache size. So, it is throwing such warning messages.

   You can ignore these warnings from startup logs. However, if the warning is filling up the startup.log, you may want to try adding allocating more memory to Tomcat.


Before making modifications to the Tomcat configuration, please check how much available memory is on the TDM Portal server

To resolve the Warning:

  1. Edit 'CA Test Data Manager Portal\tomcat\conf\context.xml'
    by adding the following entry to the context.xml file 

    <!-- The default value is 10240 kbytes, even when not added to context.xml.
    So increase it high enough, until the problem disappears, for example, set it to
    a value 5 times as high: 51200. -->

    <Resources cacheMaxSize="51200" />

  2. Restart the CA Test Data Manager Portal service
