Thanks, Greg,

This shows that you have much more than 128 MB of memory in the
machine.
I checked it again (by rebooting it and seeing its booting messages, stupid method, any good method ? uname -a did not give me the physical memory size). The physical memory is actually 256MB.

And how much swap?
I forgot. Any command to check that ?

Here is the partition info though:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a 198399 80463 102065 44% /
/dev/ad0s1f 198399 30485 152043 17% /tmp
/dev/ad0s1g 42032558 7019929 31650025 18% /usr
/dev/ad0s1e 198399 28338 154190 16% /var
procfs 4 4 0 100% /proc

I vaguely remember it's about 2 times of physical memory as recommended by BSD. So it should be about 512MB. How much should I set it, in this case now ? I need a lot of memory.

No, you need to set them in /etc/login.conf.
Here is what I see in this file.  It seems already maximum.

	:cputime=unlimited:\
	:datasize=unlimited:\
	:stacksize=unlimited:\
	:memorylocked=unlimited:\
	:memoryuse=unlimited:\
	:filesize=unlimited:\
	:coredumpsize=unlimited:\
	:openfiles=unlimited:\
	:maxproc=unlimited:\
	:sbsize=unlimited:\
	:priority=0:\

The real issue is why your simulation is dying.  Do you have any
messages in /var/log/messages indicating that you're out of swap?
Yes. Here is what I found in the log:

Dec 30 01:05:05 machi /kernel: pid 28666 (simulation), uid 1000, was killed: out of swap space
Dec 30 01:05:05 machi /kernel: swap_pager_getswapspace: failed

So, how can I increase swap space?

Thanks very much!

Frank
