Today I've finished a cross test on a suse 10.0 linux

Athlon XP 2200+ 768MB RAM + 1GB swap

loaded huge db with same config, shared mem and  set_cachesize 0  
384000000 1

slapcat -f slapd.conf

and some hours later..

free system swap was 0k and free mem about 6000K

the out file about 40% of DB.

I've tried also with

echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory

trying to avoid oom-killer to kill the fat slapd,
same result.

out-of-memory but, not malloc error or core dump this time.

Any program will expand to fill available memory.
