in reply to how to localise a problem?

Where I work we have a script running in production that is very key to the operation of one of our products. Many moons ago an issue was discovered with it that caused it to grow in memory (and I am not privy to what that was) until it eventually SIGSEG-ed and died. The solution that was put in place was the script inspected itself for how much memory it had consumed and when it went beyond a certain limit it spawned and died.

Just a thought...

[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
[1nickt]: Nice. So happy that Dells are still user-repairable. Unusual these days.
[1nickt]: I will certainly not be buying any more Macs.
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, or at least, I hopoe so ;)
