9.2i ISE - "ERROR:Portability:3 - This Xilinx application has run out of memory or has encountered a memory conflict" on Solaris

Description

Keywords: LSF, MAP, PAR, TRCE, RAM

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I encounter the following error when running ISE tools on Solaris:

"ERROR:Portability:3 - This Xilinx application has run out of memory or has
encountered a memory conflict. Current memory usage is 2073080 kb...."

Solution

This error can occur for designs that need to utilize more than 2 GB of memory on a Solaris machine with enough memory but an unlimited stack.

Check to ensure that the stack on the Solaris machine is limited, preferably to the system default of 8 MB. You can see the stack size with the command "ulimit -a" and can change the stack size to 8 MB by using the command "ulimit -s 8192".
