This is a tracking bug for Change: Enable EarlyOOM
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/EnableEarlyoom
Install earlyoom package, and enable it by default. If both RAM and swap go below 10% free, earlyoom issues SIGTERM to the process with the largest oom_score. If both RAM and swap go below 5% free, earlyoom issues SIGKILL to the process with the largest oom_score. The idea is to recover from out of memory situations sooner, rather than the typical complete system hang in which the user has no other choice but to force power off.
Branching Fedora 32 Changes from rawhide. Today is the Code Complete (testable) deadline. Please make sure your bug status is set appropriately:
Complete (testable) -> MODIFIED
Complete (100% code complete) -> ON_QA (deadline is 25 February)
If you need to defer this change until Fedora 33, please set the version back to 'rawhide'.
This is code complete and ready for testing.
Fedora 32 is released!
