#10919 new Bug

admin object deletion confirmation page causes server out of memory error

Reported by: tobias Owned by: nobody
Component: contrib.admin Version: 1.1-beta
Severity: Normal Keywords: admin memory limit
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I recently tried to delete an object in the admin that had several million related objects.

The server quickly ran out of memory as the apache process's memory usage ballooned upwards to near a gigabyte.

I assume this is because it was trying to create an HTML page listing out all the related objects.

Can the admin page do a count and/or limit to avoid this?

I'm using Django 1.1 trunk (r10628), mod_wsgi 2.0, and apache 2.2.8.

This bug is still sitting around. Maybe we should document it somewhere, that for complex objects...
