Running make with limited CPU

I am trying to compile some code in my LES VPS and always ended up with the errror below:

collect2: error: ld terminated with signal 9 [Killed]

I know this is because the CPU is limited in LES (which is expected) but I am just wondering if there is any way I can sort of compile it in a nice way so that it could use limited CPU (even if the compiling takes longer. I tried to use nice -9 make with no luck.

    Not sure but cpulimit might do the trick.

  • i believe this is a ram/swap issue.
    i tried compiling znc on my LES instance, and it failed.
    not sure how to fix it.

    I beg to differ, I used to compile the same package without issue on other 128MB RAM VPS (OpenVZ as well) but I think LES actually is more restrictive in terms of CPU due to the low price.

    Well typically when you run out of memory is when things start dying unless he's got some automation to kill -9 anything at a certain point of CPU usage. Maybe check /proc/user_beancounters for failcounts?

    i have not set up anything like this myself, and this is running on a clean install of ubuntu 12.04 x64;
    we will have to wait for anthony to respond about the possible "CPU abuse" "issue" of compiling.

    If you can find what is killing your linker, it will be easier to suggest a solution. However, my guess is also on running out of memory. Here is an interesting article on how to use gcc on low memory vps,

    http://hostingfu.com/article/compiling-with-gcc-on-low-memory-vps

    Also, I notice that the linker gets killed and not the compiler. So, you are able to compile source into objects just fine but when you try to link them, this happens ?

    good link, thanks, but it seems make.conf is only apart of gentoo/emerge.

    Interesting...so essentially the program somehow "read in" the environment to another VPS?

  • Already run cmake to compile hiawatha web server - work with any prometeus and ramhost.us vps

    yes i make this with 50cent VPS from prometeus - reliable stable you name it.

    You don't have to use /etc/make.conf. That is required only if you need to change it permanently. You can modify the CFLAGS in your makefile directly since this is a gcc option.

    After modifying your makefile, make sure gcc commands are run with the specified params similar to how it has been manually run below,

    $ cat > 1.c
    int main(void){ return 12; }
    $ gcc --param ggc-min-expand=0 --param ggc-min-heapsize=8192 1.c
    $ ./a.out; echo $?
    12
    

    Hope this helps.
