size of postprocess file!!

Postby PeytonBirch » Sun Apr 04, 2021 9:38 pm


For GID with versions 8.0~11.0, it cannot finish loading the postprocess file "***.post.res" bigger than 2GB, while for GID 11 and Gid12, the maximum size of "***.post.res" is 3GB, right?

Thanks in advance!

The limit is not the file size but the memory size requiered when its content is read (and uncompressed) into RAM memory.

Not only GiD, all x32 applications processes have a limit of about 2 or 3 GB (depending if the operating system is Windows or Linux, and some extra setting depending on its version)

x64 applications do not have this limit, and the real limit depends on the available RAM

The first GiD Windows version of 64 bits was the 9 (7 or 8 were x32)

on the other hand, since GiD 11 it appear the GiD postprocess feature of 'results cache',
If do you enable this option instead of read all results in memory they are loaded/unloaded on demand, (depending on an allowed maximum size set to be used)
