Description

Motivation

OOM (out-of-memory) handling in GNU/Linux is suboptimal and one can come into a thrashing situation easily where it is hard to come out except for rebooting the system. We should have a test procedure to explore the current limits of the systems we develop and even be able to raise feature requests next to bugs.

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: We have a testing procedure to induce OOM conditions, at best automatic
  • AC2: We understand the current limits of GNU/Linux to be able to create either bug reports or feature requests
