Is there any available software which can be used to set the /proc/<pid>/oom_score_adj of processes after they're created, based upon the executable name and the user/group?

1 gives an answer how you can be notified on "events in /proc" (including process creation). To my knowledge, there's not ready-made daemon that'll then try post-event to change the OOM score adjustment. – FrankH. Oct 17 '13 at 15:20
