I've got a question you might be able to help me with.
we have a script that we are running to analyze logs that where taken from measurements. the logfile is about 100 megabytes of text, space separated.(about 1 milion lines).
we recently changed the matlab server from a:
to a server with:
irony is that the script ran fine, if a bit slow, on the 32-bit machine as well as on a laptop of one of our employees who has a private licence (also 32-bit) but when we did a testrun on the 64-bit server, the script stopped before completion with an out-of-memory error.
it had used all of the RAM (16GB) and part of the swap, for a total of 27GB used.
entering 'memory' in matlab at that point showed that matlab had a max allowed memory of 24Gb (which it obviously exceeded)
my question to you:
tonight we're going to run the script again, this time with the increased swap size, and hopefully it will run to completion. I'm just surprised that a more powerful server with more memory, wouldn't be able to run something a less powerfull computer with less memory can.
