FW: MemoryError, can I use more?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Echavarria Gregory, Maria Angelica, Feb 15, 2010.

  1. I use the physical and kernel memory boxes in the windows task manager under the performance tab... in that way I can see the exact RAM that just OS and idle processes occupy before I run my app, and then also the limit at which my app pushes the memory...

I have managed to keep memory footprint low, but have found that, independent of the physical RAM of the machine, python always gives the MemoryError message when it has occupied exactly only 2..2 GB. I have tested this in 4 different machines, all with memory of 3 to 4 GB... I'm amazed.

    How are you determining that it has occupied "exactly only 2.2GB?"
