No more 180 day trial licensing....thanks Cisco :(

Limitations of passing SQL across the Unified OS CLI

I have found that if you pass around 500 SQL updates via the CLI, you will get the following memory fault, 10.5.2, I have not yet tested with any other version:

Exception in thread "main" run(): caught exception Stream closed
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread
        at java.lang.Thread.start0(Native Method)
        at java.lang.Thread.start(
        at sun.reflect.GeneratedConstructorAccessor8.newInstance(Unknown Source)
        at sun.reflect.DelegatingConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(
        at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(
        at java.lang.Class.newInstance(
        at sdMain.main(

However, I wrote a script that simply splits the loop into 400 command segments and then logs out and back in.  I will look to see if the API has the same issue as well and update this post at a later time.
