Testing new compile


#1

When running the testing command,

./qa/pull-tester/rpc-tests.sh

I get the following error. Thought this should be forward to someone...

=== Running testscript zcjoinsplitdoublespend.py ===

Not enough memory. This specific test consumes a lot (more than 4Gb)

Thanks for the reply!

I am using an Amazon EC2 instance with 8gb and 2 cores.

What would you recommend for this test? Why would it not use the 8gb available?
For mining purposes, would you recommend something more than the m4.large instance?

When mining on both cores, I see not more than 1gb ram being used...

Thanks!
