    Bulk import fails with coredump, 'mgvMemoryAlloc' errors

    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Local

    Problem Symptoms

    Start a bulk import at command line and receive following:

    bulkimport started. Reports will be in /m1/voyager/xxxdb/rpt. 
    Bulkimport Process id: NNNN 
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'mgvMemoryAlloc' 
    /tmp/Pdobulkimport.20181210.0810.6259: line 2: MMMM: Abort(coredump)
     

    Cause

    Import file is too large / insufficient memory on server to handle file's size

    Resolution

    Split the file into multiple imports. Recommended import size is 10,000 or fewer records per process.
