set_memory_limit(limit: int, *, relaxed: bool = True) int#

Set the memory limit.

Memory allocations will wait on scheduled tasks to complete if the limit is exceeded. If there are no more scheduled tasks an error will be raised if relaxed is False. Otherwise memory will be allocated (including the potential for swap) if relaxed is True.
