#1995 closed bug (fixed)

if a program takes up all the available memory haiku freezes

Reported by: kaoutsis Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: - General Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


for example: ./area_creation_test 100 B_ANY_ADDRESS B_NO_LOCK 'B_WRITE_AREA|B_READ_AREA' 500 eats 200MB

  • when the free memory is vanished, haiku will freeze

May be it's better if the program gets killed?

I have run out of RAM before and have never seen this problem.

What image are you using? I am on hrev48487 and this does not seem to happen.

We can probably close this one too, it's 7 years old.

I just tested on hrev49974, and Haiku does not freeze when it runs out of memory. We should be able to close this ticket.
