#2204: Compilation on comet failed to due out of memory
 Reporter:  Roland Haas          |       Type:  defect
   Status:  new                  |   Priority:  minor
Milestone:                       |  Component:  SimFactory
  Version:  development version  |   Keywords:  comet
 Compiling on Comet's login node failed for me when compiling
 due to an out of memory error. ulimit -a indicates that there is a limit
 of 4GB per user
 rhaas at comet-ln2:~$ ulimit -a
 core file size          (blocks, -c) 0
 data seg size           (kbytes, -d) unlimited
 scheduling priority             (-e) 0
 file size               (blocks, -f) unlimited
 pending signals                 (-i) 257194
 max locked memory       (kbytes, -l) 524288
 max memory size         (kbytes, -m) 4194304

 pipe size            (512 bytes, -p) 8

 real-time priority              (-r) 0
 stack size              (kbytes, -s) unlimited
 cpu time               (seconds, -t) 10800
 max user processes              (-u) 1024
 virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) 4194304
 file locks                      (-x) unlimited
 which can be avoided by going to a compute node
 srun --partition=debug --pty --nodes=1 --ntasks-per-node=24 -t 00:30:00
 --wait=0 --export=ALL /bin/bash
 and compiling via
 simfactory/bin/sim build --machine comet

 This is (hopefully) a temporary measure on comet.
