A bunch of people have reported the following issue with the Azure IoT Python SDK:
azure-iot-sdk-python/c/c-utility/adapters/httpapi_curl.c Func:HTTPAPI_ExecuteRequest Line:552 curl_easy_perform() failed: Out of memory
Here’s a workaround:
Please do not go to production with this workaround as it has not been fully tested. The Azure IoT team will release a permanent fix soon.
From the Python Dev Box Setup Page you’ll get to the “Compile the Python Modules” step. Right after you run
./setup.sh, you’ll need to remove
openssl and replace it with
cd build_all/linux ./setup.sh sudo apt remove libcurl4-openssl-dev sudo apt install libcurl4-gnutls-dev ./build.sh
You will then be able to run any of the samples by following the instructions here.
We don’t have a workaround at this time. A permanent fix should be rolled out soon. Please let me know if you find a workaround to swap out openssl for gnutls.
