Crash (out of memory) during bulk loading

I’m frequently seeing issues where GSE and/or GPE crash during bulk loading in Tigergraph 3.1 enterprise. I believe this due to a memory issue.

I’ve noticed that I can avoid a crash by:

  1. Starting the loading job
  2. When memory gets low pausing the job (ABORT LOADING JOB … )
  3. After waiting a bit, resuming the job (RESUME LOADING JOB … )

If I do the above, the loading job finishes successfully, and tigergraph effectively serves all the data.

I’m curious if there are any recommendations to avoid this issue. Should I just increase system memory?
