Question Memory Limit 

Forum: Run Management
Date: 14 Jun, 2013
From: Jamie <Jamie>

I am new to Geant4. I know that this must be a simple answer, but I cannot seem to find it. I am trying to calculate the dose deposition due to a radioactive seed. I hit the memory limit for an application under Windows 7 of 4 GB when I run my simulation and when I run any of the examples. This happens within 5 minutes of calculating and usually less than 200,000 disintegrations.

There must be some method of saving the dose deposited and resetting the memory used. When that is done more calculations can be performed. I know that I could run the simulation and save the dose to a file. Then restart the program and complete again. Final step would be to sum all the doses from the files together. This is very clunky and there must be a better way.

Any help is much appreciated. Jamie
