SubjectRe: Memory overcommitting
Let's say that you wrote an application that must have control over any
demise of the application, i.e. database. Since we cannot make the
assumption that malloc will protect us from ourselves or another ruthless
program, what course should someone take to handle a more graceful
shutdown if the situation comes about? How does Linux kill off processes
when the memory is exhausted?
