RCP memory exhaustion
I am attempting to execute a site-written backup procedure
that uses rcp to copy files from one server to another
about 120,000 files.
unfortunately the script always fails with the following error..
rcp: Cannot allocate memory
this occurs regardless of the user performing the rcp
(backup user or root)
and regardless of the ulimit parameters, which for the above example
Is there a kernel parameter that can altered to
increase the store available for a process? or one
that might have a bearing on rcp? I am using the
I am using version 2.3 on both servers.
And executing the rcp's from the command line
and not from within a background process.
Any input to this would be appreciated before I goto
PLAN B :)
