I am trying to run cygwin on a Windows 2003 server with 8GB of ram.
I have set the registry key to inform cygwin the max memory should be 4096
(4GB). Checking the registry - I see the value is set to 4096.
In spite of this, all indications are that it does not see more than 2GB
(2097151K) of RAM. (top and vmstat output)
Can anyone else confirm this - that memory above 2GB is not visible to
cygwin. Any known work-arounds?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Cygwin uname info is: CYGWIN_NT-5.2 **server name **
