Doing a bit of research I found it it is possible to tune or even make certain processes immune against the OOM killer by poking a value into /proc/pid/oom_adj I do of course need to find pid for my process using pidof or pgrep or something like that and make a script that I run once all my processes are up and running.
The problem with the OOM killer is just like with any other killer. It may look sane and rational on the surface but deep down they are in fact seriously disturbed, quite insane and often incapable of making a correct judgement.
Now I personally don't mind a little killing as long as I know what is going on and have a certain control over the victims (calm down folks, I am talking about the computer stuff) so I am looking for a better way to protect certain processes against the dreadded OOM killer so that I don't have to run a script everytime all my progs are running or whenever I start a new program. Any ideas to how to easily achieve this?
