The Question is:
When running a rather large executable (5500+ blocks) I get an error message
"NO VIRTUAL ADDRESS SPACE AVAILABLE" and the run does not execute. What SYSGEN
parameters do I need to reset to make this go away.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS FAQ section entitled:
How do I recover from INSVIRMEM errors?
will be of interest here, as will topics including (401),
(6399), (7857), and others. The HELP/MESSAGE text for the
most likely error -- without the specific error message
text, this is obviously a guess -- is included below.
Note that OpenVMS VAX applications are limited to 30 or 31
address bits (one or two gigabytes) of process virtual
address space, depending on how the application is coded.
Please upgrade to a supported OpenVMS VAX release.
INSVIRMEM, insufficient virtual memory
Facility: LIB, Library Facility
Explanation: The application was unable to allocate additional virtual
User Action: Reduce the application's size or complexity, or increase the
amount of available virtual memory by taking one or more of
the following actions:
o Adjust the AUTHORIZE quota PGFLQUO to increase the user's
paging file quota.
o Change the SYSGEN parameter VIRTUALPAGECNT (on VAX systems
only) to increase the system's virtual page count limit.
o Increase the size of the system paging files.
o Increase the amount of system physical memory.
