Out of Memory with localnormalization
« on: 2019 August 22 13:45:38 »
I am new to PI, and when I try to process 45 light subs in localnormalization, I get an "out of memory" error.  My subs are about 50 megs each.

I have 16gb ram, and my HD shows 970gb free.

Anything I can do to fix or work around this.  Can I process the subs in batches of, say, 10?  Would that help?

Thanks

it probably would; i think as long as you are using the same reference you can do any batch size you like.

is this on windows? does windows automagically increase the size of the paging file?

Yes, Windows 10.

I have the pagefile set up to be automatically managed by windows.

I did play around with setting it myself, to a high amount, but that didn't help.

Any idea why the memory error comes up?

But doing them in batches would be OK if that is the only way.

not sure, i don't know the ins and outs of windows memory management. i used to see file handle limits on OSX years ago but juan fixed that - never seen an out of memory condition on OSX.

You guys are already talking about stuff of which I have no idea but, have you tried restarting your machine to clear your ram?

CharlesW -

Yes, but it didn't help.

Could it have something to do with where the swap file is located?

Also, can I process the files in batches of 10?
