I keep getting the following error message window:

Error in GLPRO script

subfree: Local memory block corrupted

Can anyone tell me what that means?

This question was answered on May 27, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

When you use a half-page size (2K) you can create a situation where there is free space, but it is so fragmented that no block is large enough to write to In this situation, file system does not try to compact itself because its free space count is large Data blocks are written into the cache and committed into system memory when the next block of data comes in Because the file system does not compact in this situation and the system does not have a block free to commit the cache block, the cache manager drops the block, which results in a data corruption

It is safe to use full-page-size blocks, because they will trigger compaction.
