SUMMARY: Memory Problem?

Date: Thu Oct 28 1993 - 21:18:20 CDT

Original question: Received the message...
 Fork failed swap space exhausted for mmap data of /usr/lib/
And the jury is in. Thanks to the overwhelming and very consistent response,
the problem was indeed caused by a lack of sufficient swap space. In fact, the
available swap space was less than 1/2 of actual memory! I did a mkfile to add
more swap and haven't had a problem since (which is very good considering that
our user base just increased by 20+ people!)

Many thanks to all 31 of you who responded. You may have saved me and my
project from a great deal of embarrassment...

Many thanks also to those of you who gave me great tips on how to
monitor/detect memory problems on an ongoing basis.
