Memory allowance

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP

The RIP skin informs the core RIP of its maximum memory allowance when it is started. The -m or -mc options specify the memory as a number of mebibytes. The -mc option specifies that the RIP should allocate from a single preallocated block of memory. The -m option specifies that the RIP should allocate virtual memory on demand from the OS. For more information see Harlequin RIP memory models.

For example, the command line option

  clrip -m 150

changes the memory available for the RIP to 150 MiB.

The default is a reasonable value for basic testing. However, this value should usually be overridden when the RIP is used for normal production.

All values for -m or -mc are specified as a number of mebibytes with a minimum accepted value of 32 MiB.
