Cannot execute command, out of memory
I am accessing a remote unix server and for some reason I think the memory is all used up. All I can execute is cd command. ls does not work also. Is there any way for me to kill any running processes under my username so I can free up memory? If I exit the server I cannot login again. I am left with one terminal and no one is on the other side to reboot the server there..
When executing other commands, this is shown:
ksh: 0403-031 The fork function failed. There is not enough memory available.
First I thought of using 'exec killall' to use the current shell so there will be no forking, but I have not done it yet because if it does not work, I will no longer have any shell..
