You are receiving a Signal -6 error running an ALM process or a 4.5 RM process.

Upon checking the generated ofsrm.XXXXXX log file, you find the following error:


Module Logging OFS errors: (905002) Child died with signal 6.

The error occurs after the "select" from the input data table.

Also, in the nohup.out or similar file in $FIC_DB_HOME/bin, the following error exists:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00002ab63197058e, pid=29419, tid=46962125833872
# JRE version: 6.0_45-b06
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (20.45-b01 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C [] EventGenerator::GetEvent()+0x4e

RM 4.5:

Assertion failed: 0, file procclnt.cpp, line 772

For RM 4.5, after turning off multiprocessing, changing the number of modeling buckets to 1 1 month bucket, and removing all New Business and Prepayment IDs, process still fails with the same error.
