SingleStore DB

What happens if I run out of memory?

If the amount of memory used by row store tables (Alloc_table_memory from SHOW STATUS EXTENDED) is greater than the maximum_table_memory global variable (from SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES), SingleStore DB will refuse to start new write queries (INSERT, UPDATE and LOAD DATA). Note that DELETE queries are not affected by this limit.

If a currently running query runs out of memory, it will rollback and notify the client of the error. See Managing Memory for more information.
