Can't find anything on it on the Linux doc site (tldp). Any links?
Is it better to turn off overcommit and buy more RAM? That way postgresql
or some other process doesn't get killed?
All along I had the impression that Linux had big probs with its VM (since
2.x) with OOM situations (and not so good impressions of the people in
charge of it), and so it's mainly because of overcommit? Ack.
