In a dataset where a single snapvault relationship is configured, during the "remote backup" job phase , in the "completed job steps" there are several :
"allocating memory" event descriptions ...
Job hangs because it continuosly allocate memory until the machine memory ends..
The first step is "start" ---> "Back up data from node Primary data to node Backup of dataset vol1_cifs (23883) with hourly retention"
The second step is "progress" ---> "allocating memory"
The third step is "progress" ---> "Retry to configure and initiate a null snapshot target on the secondary volume: snap-netapp:/vol/snap_vol1."
after this every minute a "progress" with "allocating memory was created ........
I've tried to restart service, to reboot machine and i 've upgraded from 5.0 to 5.0.1
it seems a nightmare!!
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

What version of ONTAP is the controller running ? This error message is directly coming from the controller. Looks like your controller is out of ndmp kernel threads.
A reboot of the controller would this issue.

Yes there is a problem in the version of ONTAP for ndmpl kernal thread leaks.
Below is the link to the NOW public report.
I want to know your ONTAP version before I could reference this bug.
