Monitor control java heap space was starved.

The rule of thumb is 4 GB per 12 detection servers, and there are other factors at play so give it a bit more than you would think necessary. 

In this case, there were 31 detection servers, and they only had 8GB allocated


Release : 15.7

Component : Web Prevent


Edit SymantecDLPDetectionServerController.conf Located at:

C:\Program Files\Symantec\DataLossPrevention\EnforceServer\Services "Windows"

/opt/Symantec/DataLossPrevention/EnforceServer/Services "Linux"

and adjust to the appropriate value for the environment.

In this case, we increased to 16GB

Restart the SymantecDLPDetectionServerControllerService

Make sure the machine has enough physical memory on the box to make the correction.
