memory issue

Postby ghyan » Tue May 08, 2012 1:20


I was trying to load a big data file (around 10G), and got the following error when trying to load it (data =

python(1031) malloc: *** mmap(size=1052672) failed (error code=12)
*** error: can't allocate region
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_alloc

But my computer has plenty of memory (32G), and when it crashes, there is still a lot of memory unused. I am using a 64bit mac. Any way to get around this?

Many thanks.
