I am getting the following error when trying to run a reindex on one of my

reindexdb: reindexing of database "xxx" failed: ERROR:  out of memory
DETAIL:  Failed on request of size 268435456.

Can someone advise on what memory parameter was violated?  Are we looking at
work_mem, shmmax, or something else?
