[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...
