NAME ^

cPanel::MemTest - Test Memory Allocation

VERSION ^

This document describes cPanel::MemTest version 0.0.2

SYNOPSIS ^

    use cPanel::MemTest;

    my $megs_to_allocate = 200;
    my $megs_allocated   = cPanel::MemTest::testallocate( $megs_to_allocate );
    die 'There was a problem allocating memory' if $megs_allocated != $megs_to_allocate;

DESCRIPTION ^

If you know you'll be running a memory intensive script it can be nice to be able to see if there is enough memory first instead of hitting a memory limit partway through and failing with little or no control over it.

INTERFACE ^

testallocate()

This exportable function takes one argument: the number of megabytes to try and allocate betwen 1 and 1024

It returns the number of allocated megabytes.

If they are not the same then the allocation had issues ( see SYNOPSIS )

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Unable to allocate %d Megabytes of memory (Invalid Argument)

Invalid argument was passed to testallocate() (IE it is not 1 .. 1024)

Error while allocating memory! %d Megabytes already allocated

There was not enough free memory left to allocate the amount you requested.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

cPanel::MemTest requires no configuration files or environment variables.

DEPENDENCIES ^

None.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-cpanel-memtest@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.
