Description steven 2000-06-30 14:57:57 UTC
After a time of running at high Network load we get:-
kernel: VM: killing process XXXX

I believe this should only happen under low memory conditions
and at the time this happens top and vmstat report on a few MB
of the 1GB allocated has been used.

The only solution at the moment is to reboot and thats only
if the VM doesn't kill inetd/telnetd (machine is remote).

The behaviour is much worse on an SMP kernel.

Machines are trying :) to run www.wwf.com

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
