When using a one-off dyno (e.g.
heroku run ...) I am hitting memory limits.
One off dynos can use any of the available dyno types via the
--size argument. You can find instructions for using this here https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/one-off-dynos#one-off-dyno-type
Please note that the use of larger dyno sizes for one-off dynos requires the
web dyno for the app to be at least
standard-1x (i.e. not
hobby). If you are not using web dynos for your app you can set these sizes and then scale the web process down to zero to continue using larger one-off dyno sizes.
