4Gb size limits of a Procedure Library (.pl) file

This question is answered

Hello,

The knowledge base is said that, the theoretical library size can be larger than 4GB on 64-bit environment.

The PROLIB utility and the AVM use 64-bit offsets when accessing procedure library files, so in theory they can be very large. 64-bit addressing allows creation of files larger than 4GB.

But one of my clients still has limitations (OE 10.2B08, Linux 64-bit).

Cannot add rsrvrep.r to r-code library.  Library offset exceeds 4 gigabytes.

-rw-rw-r--. 1 root root 4.1G Oct 29 18:21 test.pl

I would like to ask, what else affects on the maximum size of the library in 64-bit environment?

Regards,
Valeriy

  • Hi,

    What the article indicated was theoretically true in the context it was written, however at that time the article author was unaware that there were hard-coded restrictions to the file size prior to 11.0.  These restrictions were removed in 11.0.  

    I will change the knowledgebase article to omit releases prior to 11.0.

  • I almost hate to ask... but how in the world did they end up with a 4 GB procedure library file?

  • perhaps they bundled the db in as well :)
