Gallery of Stack Traces: You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Disk

Reader Max G. sends in this stack trace, the wailing and lamenting of a Web server lacking a little size where it matters most:

Somebody get that machine a GB transfusion, stat!
Click for full size

You know how to check for that?  Load testing, perhaps, where you pile in a whole lot of records, I suppose, or overloading an uploading sort of application using your 100Gb test files.

But brace yourself: when you encounter this in a test environment, your developers will tell you it’s due to the limitations of test environment (and you can’t try it on the production server because it’s the production server, and your test might successfully break it on the Internet).  But you have to push back.  Otherwise somebody like Max might find it in production.
