telling linux to use not ram but swap ?
i have a huge problem:
i have a big database (17 GB) and a query-script in perl. the machine on which the database is running has only 1 GB RAM. if i do a query via the perl script, the result set i get is always bigger than 1 GB and i get the error message:
>> out of memory
i have searched cpan for a modul with which i can tell perl not use the ram but the swap partition , but i didnt find anything
is there a way i can tell linux:
"if a running script causes a running out of memory, use the swap partition instead of the ram"?
thx for any help
