Dear experts,

We are facing the following error, accompanied by slow performance and full disk utilization:

06:00000:00620:2014/05/08 00:55:56.99 server The 8K memory pool of named cache default data cache (cache id 0, cachelet id 1) is configured too small for current demands (state 1). Transaction progress may cease or response time may increase.

Case History:

This error was noticed with the standard 2K pool

We configured another 8K Pool, same error appeared for the 8K pool

Configured additional 16K pool, same error faced for the 16K pool

Removed the 16K pool
