The memory-limit configuration variable

memory-limit specifies how many megabytes of RAM Archiveopteryx can use without problems. Archiveopteryx will cache freely as long as total memory usage stays below the limit, but switch to conserving/freeing RAM if it's above the limit.

The limit is not absolute. It can happen that Archiveopteryx needs to use more RAM.

memory-limit is a number. Its default value is 64.

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf memory-limit.

Number syntax

Numbers are integers not smaller than 0 and not larger than 2147483647 (ie. 31-bit unsigned integers).

Spaces are allowed at the start of the line, before and after '=', and after the value. Comments extend from '#' to the end of the line.
