Hello All:

Running 5.2 at our university. We have several student's processes
that take up too much memory. Our system have 64G of RAM and some
processes take close to 32-48G of RAM. This is causing many problems
for others. I was wondering if there is a way to restrict memory usage
per process? If the process goes over 32G simply kill it. Any thoughts
or ideas?
