> GC overhead limit exceeded
> Hi I have recieved the above error.
> I am trying to read a very large WRF output file (30Gb) on an x86-64
> Linux machine with 32Gb of RAM.
> I installed the IDV using the idv_2_8u1_linux64_installer.sh

      You didn't mention what is the memory allocated to the IDV, the default 
is .5G which is a bit small to handle this kind of dataset. I would suggest you 
to update your IDV to 3.0u2, it can automatically allocate memory based on the 
system memory, and you should be ok to load the 2D variable. If the WRF output 
is not post processed and still in the staggered grid, you need to be very 
careful handling the derived variable, the unstagger process in the IDV can 
take a lot of memory and CPU. We normally suggest users to post process the WRF 
data first before loading to the IDV.
