[erlang-questions] Out of memory and garbage collection
Thu Jan 22 13:00:45 CET 2009
I have a simple question: In Java, it is guaranteed that, before an
OutOfMemoryException it thrown, all possible garbage collection has been
done. So, out of memory really means out of memory.
Does a similar guarantee hold for Erlang as well? Or is it possible for the
system to terminate with an out of memory error while garbage collection
could have freed more memory?
