The system default rule for FairCom Server action when a user exceeds his/her memory limit. This rule is employed only if the System Administrator has not assigned a rule specifically to the user or the user’s primary group.

Valid values are:

  • ABSOLUTE - The memory limit set for a user is to be applied as given, so no additional memory beyond the established limits will be allocated if it is requested.
  • GUIDELINE - The memory limit set for a user guides memory allocation as follows: allow the user to have requested memory beyond the limit set, if it is available, and when another user needs that memory, then it reduces the amount of memory used back down toward the guideline as soon as possible (e.g., by moving memory resident information to disk).
