Killed

Hi @Timothee,

this “Killed” message is raised by Python interpreter by default whenever the execution process crosses some limit of system resources. In your case it is most likely that you run out of working memory.

When processing data for each bounding box region separately please make sure that you don’t have any memory leaks and that you don’t keep too much data in RAM.

We might be able to help further if you share some parts of the code you are trying to run.

Thank you Malek for your answer.
I’m trying to download images over 3 years, it’s maybe to big for one request. I’ll try to split request by slice of time to don’t overload memory.
