    Well, you seem to managed to fork the post anyway ...

    You might try being a wee bit more descriptive about what your problem is so that we have at least the slightest clue.

    Apologies for forking details in the previous thread

    Our application is CHUI Application hosted on Solaris server. We recently upgraded our application from 10.1C to 11.6.

    Screens are crashing with a below-mentioned error after application upgrade to 11.6

    SYSTEM ERROR: Too many sub-processes, cannot fork. Errno=12. (358)

    Thanks & Regards,

    Solaris is infamous for this. You need a *lot* of swap on Solaris.

    I'd migrate to Linux. Solaris is a dead-end.

    enabling client logging or generating client protrace files should help look at the call stack to see if it is what you expect.

    Do you face Memory /fork issues while migrating on Linux ?

    Linux uses optimistic swap reservation while Solaris is (very) pessimistic.

    I can only second what Tom said. Solaris is a PITA when it comes to swap space.
