Abstract

Test the memory limit by running an automation in the playground.

After configuring the memory limitation to the recommend 1 GB, you can test the memory limit in the playground.

  • Run the following automation script:

    from multiprocessing import Process
    import os
    
    
    def big_string(size):
        sys.stdin = os.fdopen(0, "r")
        s = 'a' * 1024
        while len(s) < size:
            s = s * 2
        print('completed creating string of length: {}'.format(len(s)))
    
    
    size = 1 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024
    p = Process(target=big_string, args=(size, ))
    p.start()
    p.join()
    if p.exitcode != 0:
        return_error("Return code from sub process indicates failure: {}".format(p.exitcode))
    else:
        print("Success allocating memory of size: {}".format(size))

    The command returns an error when it fails to allocate 1 GB of memory. For example:
