SIGSEGV for stack growth failure.


Iam seeing the following error on an HPUX DATA base server

Pid 29939 received a SIGSEGV for stack growth failure.
Possible causes: insufficient memory or swap space,
or stack size exceeded maxssiz.

Re: SIGSEGV for stack growth failure.

You may out of swap space. What does

swapinfo -tam

show?

Re: SIGSEGV for stack growth failure.

It seems you have enough swap. From your other thread, you are increasing maxssiz:
