Swap Memory Exhausted

Swap Memory Exhausted

Post by Mazzoni Tommas » Wed, 05 Jul 1995 04:00:00

Hi folks,

how to increase the HD swap memory? While I'm trying to compile large Fortran
programs with g77 I usually get the message "Swap Memory Exhausted" and I don't
know how to increase its dimension.

Can someone be of help?
Thank You, Tommaso Mazzoni, Italy.


1. virtual memory exhausted: Why doesn't it swap!?

I'm trying to compile a rather big program and at some point of the
process it always fails reporting a "virtual memory exhausted" error. I
was quite surprise since I have a fairly big amount of both RAM and
swap available. On further examinations it appears like, even though
the swap space is available it remains unused. Anybody could help me on

here's the output produced by "swapon -s" and "free" respectively:

Filename              Type         Size    Used    Priority
/dev/hda2             partition    128516  0       -1

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         63492      50484      13008       7708      12044      23188
-/+ buffers/cache:      15252      48240
Swap:       128516          0     128516

NOTE: The amount of swapped memory used while compiling never
exceeds 4Mb. I tried increasing the priority, just in case, but it
didn't make any difference.

Many thanks in advance,
