Some operating systems limit the amount of RAM a single process can consume. Sometimes that amount can be adjusted. Also 32bit systems can only use a limited amount of RAM per process due to the limit of what you can address with 32bits -- over that amount you can give the system 100GB or 1000GB of swap, it won't change a thing. Even if those do not apply, I guess it's very much possible for a process to eat up all the RAM, no matter how much that is, all it would need is a little bit of recursion. > I'm now considering exporting the Plone site (cos that's what it is) one > piece at a time and reimporting it into a clean Plone site. Any thoughts on > whether or not this is a good idea? Not mentioning Plone in the first place is problematic. In fact *plone* is problematic. Did you verify with plohn people (e.g. on a Plone mailing list) that current plone versions can be imported/exported? (Because the last time I made the mistake to do a project with plone you couldn't import/export a plone site -- or rename it, move it to another instance or anything similar for that matter -- without major pain. It's been a while though, so things could have changed.) Summary: Go and ask the plone people, if you can't import anyway, the whole exercise is in vain. Good luck!
