    From googling, my understanding is that the OS is killing my running process here due to running out of memory. I have 8gb on my host machine, and I can see that I am not going over 4gb used. I added the memory switches above, to no discernible effect.

    Since I’m running this on Win7 and the older docker toolbox, am I being limited by Oracle’s VM VirtualBox?
