Integer overflow on computing amount of memory required.

Hello expert,

 

My data is observations of firms data in stock exchange. I got the following error in LOG:

ERROR: Integer overflow on computing amount of memory required. A request to allocate 28439.9M bytes of memory can not be

honored.

 

My sas code is as follows:

proc mixed data=sasfile06 method=ml covtest nobound;

class Old;

model ROA=INDUSTRY YEAR/s intercept;

random OLD RD MARKETING LOANS/type=un s;

repeated / type=un subject=ID;

run;

 

I probably did a mistake but could not find any clue via interent or forum as a solution.

 

Any remarks will acceptable, THANKS

Re: Integer overflow on computing amount of memory required.

The error message is pretty clear: SAS wants 28 GB of RAM (!!) to do the requested calculations. If you think the amount of data you are processing doesn't justify this and the message is unjustified, the best thing to do is contact tech support.
