Bit sad replying to myself again....:-)

Anyway - no it does not... still 512M

A bit of grepping through the 4.9 source finds that the beast controlling all this is:

$ grep  MAXDSIZ /usr/src/sys/i386/include/vmparam.h
#ifndef MAXDSIZ
#define MAXDSIZ         (512UL*1024*1024)       /* max data size */

so is there any reason *not* to amend this and recompile?


#define MAXDSIZ (1024UL*1024*1024) /* max data size now 1G */

any opinions out there?



Mark Kirkwood replied to himself:

I should have mentioned that I built the kernel when the machine had either 512M or 1G of ram, and have subsequently added another 1G. Would rebuilding the kernel result in this limit being recalculated?
