   This issue comes up occasionally. Should we consider having a PETSc option that uses setrlimit() to bound the virtual memory size the process can have? Not a perfect solution but at least something, maybe better than nothing?

The server, where I am running the code on just stops responding and one needs to wait till the code crashes.  Can I force the code to crash gracefully when it runs out of memory?
