PRB: Error Message “out of low memory mbufs!”

PSS ID Number: Q173030 Article last modified on 08-26-1997




The information in this article applies to:

  • == Softimage 3D for IRIX, version 3.7 ==


The following error message appears when your machine has memory/swap problems:

Jul 20 01:01:03 6F:benzene syslogd: restart Jul 20 01:01:03 4A:benzene unix: WARNING: out of low memory mbufs! Jul 20 01:01:04 4A:benzene last message repeated 11 times Jul 20 01:01:09 4A:benzene unix: WARNING: out of low memory mbufs! Jul 20 01:02:51 4A:benzene last message repeated 235 times …

This message continues for about 25 pages.


If a daemon or process cannot run due to memory problems, IRIX generates the above message until memory is freed up so the processes that you are trying to run can actually run.


Shut your machine down, and then restart it. If this does not resolve the problem, have your system administrator systune your hard drive. If this fails, it may be necessary to replace your hardware.


If you have any questions concerning the information contained in this article, contact by e-mail.
