This document addresses how to diagnose and address memory related issues for Oracle Risk Manager (RM).  When running a Risk Manager process on the server, the process fails / dies due to a lack of memory.  A return code of -11 is returned to the server status update window.  In the Request Queue (rq) log, there is a signal 11 message and a core dump file is created on the server.  The signal 11 message may be preceded by an "Out of Memory" error with a return code of 1008.  There may be an additional message in the ofsrm.xxxx file (where xxxx is the job number).

If running a stochastic RM process with multiprocessing on, the process may also hang while waiting for resources rather than fail with a signal 11 or signal 6 error.
