Sadly, the original tweet doesn't mention what mainframe - Somebody did
ask, and there was no response I could see.

The error messages suggest it's some sort of Linux system using Docker
containers, so it's not OS/360 :-)

I suspect given that it's running out of memory, that it's yet another
linux box.

Kindest regards,

Doug Jackson

Go outside and do something awesome - Draw, paint, walk, setup a
radio station, go fishing or sailing - just do something that makes you
