[REBOL] Eating resources equals probing BIG blocks?
From: Rebolinth::nodep::dds::nl at: 13-Aug-2003 17:52
Hello All /RT,
Emagine a machine with 640 MB memory and 1 GIG Swap CPU = P4 running (Linux)
(free > 500 MB, SWAP = 0 )
Create a block that contains between 10000 and 50000 blocks
then do a probe on the block...(using the core shell, not from a script!)
My system in not able to handle the the speed that is eaten at that time,
even worse the system completely colapses within 2 minutes, the SWAP
is full and has left only a little memory...
What happens during a Probe? or does it depend whats inside the block?
(In my case the block contains simple copies of open ports)
I reported this some time back also, but now i run into it again...Odd behaviour...
