Summary

Function: integer llGetMemoryLimit( );

Get the maximum memory a script can use.
Returns the integer amount of memory the script can use in bytes.

Specification

Mono
Gets the memory limit for the script.
  • The memory limit can be up to 64k.
  • The default memory limit is 64k[1].
  • The memory limit is not the amount of real memory actually used by the script, just the upper limit on how much it could use.
LSO
LSO scripts will always use exactly 16k

Examples

<lsl>default {

   state_entry()
   {
       llSetMemoryLimit( 4000 ); // set the memory limit
       
       // display memory usage...
       llSay(0, "Memory used: " + (string)llGetFreeMemory() + " bytes, total memory: " + 
           (string)llGetMemoryLimit() + " bytes." );
   }

}

// outputs

// Object: Memory used: 124 bytes, total memory: 4000 bytes.</lsl>
