Hi all,

After checking the Erl_crash.dump file, I found the below line.

Slogan: no more index entries in atom_tab (max=1048576)
System version: Erlang (BEAM) emulator version [source] [threads:0]

According to that the system has gone space out of atom table entries. How
can I increase the atom_tab (max=1048576) value?

Hi all,

I'm trying to load test a Mnesia database. Attached are header and erlang
files I used to do the test. Below are the commands I ran (start erlang with
mnesia directory).


Once I do that, the shell goes adding new entries and after some time prints
"Abnormal error" and hangs for ever. If I only tries to add about 100,000
records, it works without any problems.

If you need the erl_crash.dump file, I can send. It's about 19MB (8MB

What could be there error?

Thanks in advance!
