  When Linux Runs Out of Memory
Subject:   OOM Behaviour

First of all, thanks for the article. I found it very useful.

I compiled loop-callo.c on my desktop machine. I ran it, and suddenly my firefox session was killed by OOM.

I don't understand why firefox was killed instead of the newly-created memory-eating process. Firefox was started much before loop-call was.

Is there anyother way to adjust OOM behaviour other than placing "OOM_DISABLE" on /proc/<pid>/oomadj ?


P.S : Good link -> http://linux-mm.org/OOM_Killer
