Memprof-limits is an implementation of (per-thread) global memory
limits, (per-thread) allocation limits, and cancellation of CPU-bound
threads, for OCaml. Memprof-limits interrupts a computation by raising
an exception asynchronously and offers features to recover from them
such as interrupt-safe resources.
The implementation uses OCaml's Memprof engine with a low sampling
rate that does not affect performance.
An explanation of what must be done to ensure one recovers from a
memprof-limits interrupt is provided. It summarises the experience
acquired in OCaml in the Coq proof assistant, as well as in other
situations in many other programming languages. To my knowledge, this
has never been told in textbooks, so I thought it might be of general
interest to the community.
