Memory Errors when Integrating

Hey everyone,
I’m running ROOT 6.09 and I’m having some trouble when I try to integrate an interpolated function.
The code looks basically like this:

auto dIdzSpline = std::make_shared<TSpline3>("dI/dz Spline ", (double*),(double*), zGridSize);
std::vector<double> dNoverdE; 

TF1* dIdzdNdE = new TF1("Integrand dI/dz * dN/dE",
					[dIdzSpline, source] (double* args, double* params) 
					{ return dIdzSpline->Eval(args[0]) * source->EnergySpectrum(params[0], args[0], params[1]); },
					source->m_zBounds.first, source->m_zBounds.second, /*npar*/ 2);
for(int i = 0; i < EGridSize; i++)
	for(int j = 0; j < GammaGridSize; j++)
		dIdzdNdE->SetParameters(EGrid[i], GammaGrid[j]);
		dNoverdE[i+j*GammaGridSize] = dIdzdNdE->Integral(source->m_zBounds.first, source->m_zBounds.second);	

The execution fails with a Segmentation fault after a couple (~6) of loop iterations with the following call stack:

and error:

“received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.\n”
“malloc_consolidate (av=av@entry=0x7ffff6052b00 <main_arena>) at malloc.c:4216\n”

Is this my fault or is this a bug?
Thanks for your input,

Hi Niklas,

This failure indicates that you are running out-of-memory. From the code snippet, I do not see any obvious source of the leak. You may need to use some profiling tools to see where the memory is being lost and/or hoarded.
