Maple totaly exhaust memory and swap

Maple totaly exhaust memory and swap

Post by Frank Heck » Fri, 07 Apr 1995 04:00:00


I run Maple 5r3 on two different machine's:

 1) 486 DX 2-66 with linux kernel 1.0.9 ----- no problems
 2) pentium 60  with linux kernel 1.2.1 ----- big problems.

more precisely: the program exhausts step by step the whole memory and
finally the whole swap. afterwards my machine doesnt listen to my intructions.

what to do?

thank you very much.

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,

10. Is swap space in SCO only swap space or is it consider virtual memory
