Title: GC overloaded on FreeBSD

ID: 17040


Product: LispWorks for Linux
Version: 4.4
OS: FreeBSD

Description: The following was observed:

The program (which conses a lot) approaches 128MB or so, it occasionally stops doing anything and fully loads the processor. I can simulate this behavior if I run (clean-down) from the REPL when the memory is close to that level.

The problem is that LispWorks collides with the shared libraries on FreeBSD at around that size of heap.

Workaround: Try starting LispWorks with the --relocate-image 0x30000000 command line arguments to move the heap higher. See http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/lw445/LWUG/html/lwuser-308.htm

Workaround: Use the native FreeBSD version of LispWorks 5.0
