Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13274
VM kills processes after a time at high load
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:51 EDT
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
