Description Ben Cotton 2020-07-16 16:22:25 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: Enable EarlyOOM on Fedora KDE
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/KDEEarlyOOM

As Fedora Workstation did in F32, install earlyoom package, and enable it by default. If RAM goes below 4% free and swap below 10% free, earlyoom issues SIGTERM to the process with the largest oom_score. If RAM goes below 2% free and swap goes 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.
