In principle 64-bit LispWorks can grow to almost 16TB but it is intentionally limited to a defined range in order to avoid clashes with other software as shown in Default range for 64-bit LispWorks heap.
In contrast, 32-bit LispWorks has a maximum heap size of 1.5-3.0GB depending on platform.
Normally 64-bit LispWorks for Linux automatically adjusts its default heap size on startup according to whether it runs on "old Linux" or "new Linux". On old systems, LispWorks sets the end of its range to
. On new systems, it sets the end to
, thus giving a range of 4TB. However, if the size is given explicitly by command line argument
or InitLispWorks in a dynamic library, then this overrides the automatic adjustment.
LispWorks is relocatable on all supported platforms as described in Startup relocation of 32-bit LispWorks and Startup relocation of 64-bit LispWorks.
