Test the Memory Limit

Follow these instructions to test the memory limit by running an automation.
After configuring the memory limitation to the recommend 1 GB, you can test the memory limit in the playground.
  1. Run the following automation script:
    from multiprocessing import Process import os def big_string(size): sys.stdin = os.fdopen(0, "r") s = 'a' * 1024 while len(s) < size: s = s * 2 print('completed creating string of length: {}'.format(len(s))) size = 1 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 p = Process(target=big_string, args=(size, )) p.start() p.join() if p.exitcode != 0: return_error("Return code from sub process indicates failure: {}".format(p.exitcode)) else: print("Success allocating memory of size: {}".format(size))
    The command returns an error when it fails to allocate 1 GB of memory. For example:
