memory.size {utils}R Documentation

Report on Memory Allocation


memory.size and memory.limit are used to manage the total memory allocation on Windows. On other platforms these are stubs which report infinity with a warning.


memory.size(max = FALSE)

memory.limit(size = NA)


max logical. If true the maximum amount of memory obtained from the OS is reported, otherwise the amount currently in use.
size numeric. If NA report the memory size, otherwise request a new limit, in Mb.


To restrict memory usage on a Unix-alike use the facilities of the shell used to launch R, e.g. limit or ulimit.


Size in bytes: always Inf.
