Hi Lane –


We are actively working on this.  I’m hoping we’ll have a solution in the next few months.

Hello All,

We have been having a very similar problem to this. We have upwards of 64GB of RAM, but similar error messages occur whenever we try to run a PB calculation on a large structure using the parallel option.

Unable to allocate memory!
(This often means you don't have enough memory available for this calculation.)
FATAL ERROR: Unable to allocate enough memory for problem size.
FATAL ERROR: You requested 1440528904 bytes of RAM.

FATAL ERROR: Check that your system has that much memory.
VASSERT: ASSERTION FAILURE!  filename vmem.c, line 252, (ram != ((void *)0))
