: One of our programs here gives the following error when running:
: Pid XXXX received a SIGSEGV for stack growth failure.
: Possible causes: insufficient memory or swap space,
: or stack size exceeded maxssiz.
: Memory fault (coredump)
: We've played with the program to lessen the stack requirements but we're
: really up against a wall now. I think that I may need to increase the value
: of maxssiz, but is this a kernel parameter or what? The machine has beau coup
: swap space and 500MB of ram. Any help is appreciated.
The kernel parameter maxssize is set to about 64 MB by default. Use
SAM to change it. See also maxtsize and maxdsize.
