    er_archive with >2GB of shared object library

    866474
      I am using SS12U1 on SuSe10 linux and have run into problem of er_archive running out of memory.

      er_archive: Error: Memory capacity exceeded.
      Requested 20971520 bytes.

      One of the shared object linked at run time is 2.7G in size and er_archive runs out of memory when archiving this shared object. There is plenty of memory available in the system. Using top, I observed that er_archive was at about 4G of memory usage when it stopped due to this error.

      % file /SUNWspro-SS12U1/sunstudio12.1/prod/bin/er_archive
      /SUNWspro-SS12U1/sunstudio12.1/prod/bin/er_archive: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

      Is there a 64-bit version of er_archive available to overcome memory limitation?
