OpenBGPD 4.2 crash

Ask The List
A long running bgp session died with the following error... there was plenty
of free memory available on the box. over 1 gig free. Anyone know why this
condition occurs and how I can avoid this in the future? Thanks.

well, you ran out of memory in the sense that malloc was not willing to
give you more. prime candidate: ulimit.
