Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi all,

I have a problem, I have a 4gb ram server and whenever I try to generate areas with the standard rules file the server kills the process after ~1 hour due to lack of ram- meaning it does not complete a full batch cycle.

I have tried with the areas_low_ram script which does complete a full batch cycle but most of the areas it generates are missing tags such as the name tag.

Does anyone have a low ram area rules script that completes a batch runs and generates areas with all the correct tags?

If no concrete help here, try asking on the discussion page in the OSM wiki: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API

or ask the author Roland Olbricht directly ... contact see OSM wiki.

You were already discussing this issue with Roland here [1]. Why not continue working on that thread and close this one. Creating many similar threads is really confusing as nobody has a clue, which thread is still current.

If you don't find this help format useful for discussions, you might want to create a Github issue [2] instead.
