IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe eating up memory

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi y'all,

I upgraded my mobo/CPU a while back and with that through some RAID's in my computer. Both are RAID 0's: one is two Agility 3's, the other two 2TB WD Green's.

Anyway, the problem I'm having is that after the computer has been running for a spell, the process IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe starts eating up RAM. Never all of it, but it gets up to about 2GB out of a possible 8GB. With a few Chrome tabs open and some Minecrafting, I notice the Minecrafting will start getting choppy. I'll also have JDownloader open as well. However, on a clean boot, with only this Chrome tab open, IAStor is sitting at ~28K for usage -- nearly nothing.

I found this forum post on the Intel boards that seemed to indicate that it was an issue with the computer thinking I wasn't in AHCI mode. Obviously I don't think I can stop the process like most people through that site suggested but I double-checked my BIOS anyway. I'm not in AHCI mode but in RAID mode (because I need to be to run my RAID). I'm just posting here to see if you all can come up with a solution to my problem. I'm assuming the process is necessary, but I want to double-check that. Is this a manner of fiddling with some settings? Should IAStor end up eating that much RAM after some usage?

Any and all manner of help would be appreciated.

use a newer/older version of the IRST driver.

Will that fix the problem, Sean, or am I just starting troubleshooting?

Probably fix it as there was a driver version that had a memory leak issue.

Yes indeed there was. Just found some Intel forum pages talking about it and it was specifically the one I had installed. As of August they recommended rolling back from 11.5 to 11.2 but I scoured the interwebz and found an 11.6. Giving that a try. The original issue has resolved itself, but only because the IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe is completely gone, now. I can't open the Intel RST control panel, either. Tried starting the process in Services and I got an "unexpected error" failure message. Thoughts, Sean?

This is the 11.6 driver, when you install this: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/21852/a08/iata_cd.exe&lang=eng&Dwnldid=21852&ProductID=2101&ProductFamily=Software+Products&ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Rapid+Storage+Technology+%28Intel%C2%AE+RST%29

check the box for the control center when you install it. It should work. If not then uninstall the rapid storage driver in the uninstall programs list and then reinstall.

So 11.6 didn't seem to be working. I tried installing it again with the Control Center, uninstalling then reinstalling, but I couldn't get the process going again and couldn't open the RST "program" via Start Menu. I rolled back to 11.2, though, and everything seems good. Just booted back up and checked that the process is running but have yet to confirm the memory leak. Looks good so far, though. Thanks Sean!
