I've got a serious problem with a database application (AceDB) on a
SS10/Sol2.4 with 32Mb. Whenever one of my users starts doing any
serious searching or works with a big data-set the program dumps with a
memory allocation error and tells me it can't create any new processes.
No problemo, says I, and I start tweeking up maxusers. Problem is, no
matter how high I set maxusers, max_nprocs, and/or maxuprc the thing
still crashes. I've also tried playing with lotsfree to open up more
pages to no avail. The same app runs like a dream on a SS20/Sol2.5 with
64Mb without needing any plugs in /etc/system.
Is there something stupid I'm over-looking here? Any help greatly
