Please read the FAQ:

This is a known bug and has been discussed on the list previously:

This error was discussed just a couple of days ago - please follow the above guidelines before posting bug reports (particuarly the bit about searching the bug database and archive).

Your instance of the bug is the less usual one - the file you are commiting is small but the RCS file is large, which will cause the same error.  Please read all the above information carefully since it's quite detailed and explains all of your options (including why adding more memory will not help).

Subject:	[cvsnt] "Out of memory" while commiting


we get the following problem while committing a binary file of size 

cvs commit -m LIV_logistic_manager_101 -- 
program\agv_manager\LogisticCore.exe (in directory E:\R&D\System 
Manager\Software\agv_manager 7\)

Checking in program/agv_manager/LogisticCore.exe;

\systemmgr/systemmgr/program/agv_manager/LogisticCore.exe,v <-- 

new revision:; previous revision:

cvs [server aborted]: out of memory; can not reallocate 343932928 bytes

we're using CVSNT 2.5.03 build 2382 on windows 2003 server. The server 
has 1Gb RAM and 2,5 Gb of virtual memory. There are at least 40 Gb of 
free disk space on the CVSNT Temp directory, and also on the repository 

LogisticCore.exe,v has now a size of 400 Mb.

When the cvs command is executed, the process "cvs.exe" uses less than 
1Gb of memory (500 Mb RAM & 500Mb VM)

Before upgrading the server up to 4Gb, I would like to know if it will 
be enough to solve the problem or if there's another solution

Thanks a lot
