out of memory.malloc_storage
Dear Everybody

I am solving an problem via Fluent. There are 7399000 cells. My PK have 4GB of RAM, total paging file size 28184 MB, free space on disk C - 23.3 GB. There is an error: Warning: ST_Malloc: out of memory.malloc_storage: unable to malloc f_a0, size 86626640, t 25, myid 1000000. How can I solve this problem? Best regards Thanks for all, Anna

Re: out of memory.malloc_storage
By reducing the cells number. This error appear when the mesh has more cells than fluent manage to handle. I received the same error even if I never overreach 55 % on machine resource.

Reduce your number of cells to a maximum of 4 millions cells.
