Hey Asad,

What is the output of your server's following when you are seeing these alerts?

show status,

show process using-most memory

show process using-most cpu

show version active

Try the following:

Go to Cisco Unity Connection Administration Page--Service Parameters-Select Service*--(Cisco RIS Data Collector(Active)) -- Maximum Number of Processes and Threads*.

The maximum value can be 3000

Just add one more thing while changing this parmater then you need to reboot the machine as prompted. as a matter of fact this could be the case where higher resrouces have been involved. changing this will solved your problem.

One question how frequent you are getting this alert.
