Default Problem with convert

When i try to use this command (present on imagemagick) on big images i have problems.

For example if you go on imaging-resource and you download an image taken with the Nikon D800.
convert D800...jpg D800....png
From an image of 21.5 mb on /tmp is present a temporary file of 275Mb!
Also, in the end, the png isn't made, remain 0 byte.

Note:
Now i using openbsd 5.1 but i have this problem since the 5.0 with the difference that now the /tmp have more space so at least don't said that the /tmp is full!

Ciao, aleunix.

See http://imagemagick.sourceforge.net/http/www/FAQ.html#C9 on memory allocation formulae.

Do you get any error messages? A little internet search told me that a frequent complaint is getting memory allocation failures. And the same search informed me that you can add -debug all to your convert command to obtain more information.

I don't use ImageMagick ... but from your description and from that search I will take a guess that you need to review your ulimit (bourne shell based shells) or limit (c-shell based shells) values, and make appropriate adjustments in login.conf(5).

No since after a while seem that the process stop itself while instead take only a pause and go on!
So the first time i stopped the process when itself seem stopped, this time i wait a little longer and when i have see 348 Mb i decide to stop it!

Unfortunately i haven't obtain useful information but only a series of almost identical lines.

I use the standard shell for OpenBSD.

I put the standard /etc/login.conf as attach file.
