Issue #1831 has been updated by Francois Tigeot.

Status changed from New to Feedback

Much work has been done recently to handle low-memory situations gracefully.

Does this problem still occur ?
Bug #1831: HAMMER "malloc limit exceeded" panic

Author: Edward O'Callaghan
Status: Feedback
Priority: High
Assignee: Matthew Dillon
Target version: 

I was able to reproduce with a hammer equivalent of issue1726 with the following
test case from vsrinivas in issue1726:

#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

main() {
        int i;
        char id[320] = {};

        for (i = 0; i < 10000000; i++) {
                sprintf(id, "%09d", i);
                link("sin.c", id);

        return 0;
