From last two days I can see following in SQL Server errorlog.

AppDomain 2 (mssqlsystemresource.dbo[runtime].1) unloaded.
&
AppDomain 2 (mssqlsystemresource.dbo[runtime].1) is marked for unload due to memory pressure.

I have system environment like this :

OS- microosft windows server 2012 R2 Standard
processors - Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 0 @2.60 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) - 8GB
Hardware Information - VMWare, Inc. VMware Virtual Platform
SQL Server - Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise (64-bit)

I have checked out in local server for yesterday's event log . I have found thses events

Custom event details: 

I have gone through the Stackexchange before asking the question i have found out the ref App domain is marked for unload due to memory pressure but some point of view , unable to understand the event log message.

Output of select @@version;

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (SP1) - 11.0.3000.0 (X64) Oct 19 2012 13:38:57 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.2 (Build 9200: ) (Hypervisor)

and output of exec sp_configure;

Name                    minimum     maximum      config_value     run_value 
max server memory (MB)   128        2147483647    2147483647     2147483647

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

  • Please add output of select @@Version. How often do you see this message in errorlog. What is max server memory value you have set. – Shanky Oct 1 '15 at 6:44
  • @Shanky, After query of select @version; i am getting Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (SP1) - 11.0.3000.0 (X64) Oct 19 2012 13:38:57 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.2 <X64> (Build 9200: ) (Hypervisor) – Md Haidar Ali Khan Oct 1 '15 at 7:03
  • @Shanky, The max server memory (MB) value is 2147483647. – Md Haidar Ali Khan Oct 1 '15 at 7:19

    @Shanky, only two times . I have already written in first statement from last two days i am getting this error. – Md Haidar Ali Khan Oct 1 '15 at 7:25

    Thanks for information. Yes I have read that but its quite possible you can get lots of such messsages within two days. The course of troubleshooting would also depend on frequency of such error. – Shanky Oct 1 '15 at 7:28

Without discounting anything stated in @Shanky's answer, it should be noted that the specific AppDomain being unloaded is in the [mssqlsystemresource] database. This is an internal database that stored built-in SQL Server functionality. Other built-in functionality resides in the [master] database. Even with the server-level configuration option of "CLR Enabled" turned off, you can still see one or both of these AppDomains being loaded if you use any of the following (and there could be other internal uses of CLR that are not in this list):

  • Datatypes:
    • HierarchyID
    • Geography
    • Geometry
  • Functions:
    • FORMAT
    • TRY_CONVERT
    • TRY_PARSE
  • Features:
    • Change Data Capture
    • Dynamic Management Framework
    • Replication
    • Policy-Based Management

Run the following:

SELECT * FROM sys.dm_clr_appdomains;
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_clr_loaded_assemblies;

If no rows returned, then run the following:

SELECT FORMAT(GETDATE(), 'dd');
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_clr_appdomains;
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_clr_loaded_assemblies;

And you should now see an entry for "master.sys[runtime].xx" (where the xx is some number), but still no loaded assemblies. Now run:

DECLARE @Test [HierarchyID];
SET @Test = '/1/';
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_clr_appdomains;
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_clr_loaded_assemblies;

And you should now see a loaded assembly as well. It should be assembly_id 1 and that is the same entry in all databases: Microsoft.SqlServer.Types. This assembly shows up in all databases if you run SELECT * FROM sys.assemblies;, but it only truly lives in [master].

To start with you have SQL Server 2012 patched to SP1. I would urge you, ASAP, patch SQL Server with SQL Server 2012 SP2

There has been some prominent memory related fix in SQl Server 2012 Sp2. Please read one of the KB Article documenting OOM error fix. If you look closely the fix is also for

AppDomain 3181 () is marked for unload due to memory pressure. AppDomain 3181 () unloaded. Error: 9602, Severity: 16, State: 1.

I am not saying with surety that you might be hitting the bug mentioned as it requires more thorough analysis.

only two times . I have already written in first statement from last two days i am getting this error

You confirmed that within two days you have only seen this message twice which makes me believe that this is not much to worry about. Sometimes such messages are benign when CLR is loaded and unloaded. The problem arises when this message is frequent. This would then require more analysis.

App domain messages used to be real issue in 32 bit system due to VAS limitation. In 64 bit system App domain unloaded message is mainly due to either corrupt .net framework or when you have incorrectly set max server memory value. But later was true till SQL Server 2008 r2. From 2012 onwards since memory for CLR is allocated from max server memory you have set this should not be much of issue. So I suggest you also look at messages related to .Net framework. I dont have much experience how to go ahead with .net troubleshooting.

Do you use SQLCLR objects ?. See Various error messages logged when you use SQLCLR. There is Blog by Bob Dorr about how to proceed when you see lots of such messages in SQL Server errorlog.

With

ABC 1008 Error Microsoft-Windows-Perflib Application 10/01/2015 2:21 ABC 2 Error TeamCentral Application 9/30/2015 4:20:41 PM.

I hunch is this is somewhere related to .Net framework.

    @MdHaidarAliKhan and Shanky: I agree that so far there is nothing here to worry about. AppDomains get marked for unload due to memory pressure all of the time. And I also agree that SP2 should be applied. I added an answer just to clarify the source of the CLR usage and that, at least in this case, doesn't appear to be anything within the direct control of the user (meaning in terms of coding best practices, etc). – Solomon Rutzky Oct 1 '15 at 15:52
  • @Shanky, As per srutzky instruction i have followed and find out my right answer. so, mark as a answer. – Md Haidar Ali Khan Oct 4 '15 at 5:45
