  • Subject: [SCIRUN-USERS] RAM limit?
  • Date: Fri, 7 Apr 2006 09:39:57 -0500

Hi all,
  I think I've run into a memory limit in SCIRun:

 malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=1073741824) fail
ed (error code=3)

It seems to hit a ceiling at a gig? I've tried this on two machines, both macs, one with 2GB and one with 4GB of RAM. The module throwing the error is ShowField. Do any of you know if this is hardcoded or if it might be a bug? If it's a bug perhaps I can go digging...
