MemoryError


I was running a quick scan plus on a 10.0.0.0/8 net and scrolling through Nmap output (is has been running since 
yesterday / 17 hours).
I did click the Cancel button and continued scrolling through the output when the error occured (I don't know if it 
already was crashed before that).

I'm new to Nmap so I might have misused it.
Hi,

you're running a huge scan from the GUI, that needs to hold everything
in memory. Looks like you just went out of RAM...

Try running nmap from command line and output results to a file (see
-oX). Actually, for such a large network I'd advise you to split your
scan into several ones so that your results are stored in numerous
decently-sized files and not in a single multiple-GB one.

Regards

Henri
