    I will try it tomorrow evening, it's a production system, so it's not so
    easy to "try".
    How can I trigger the oom kills? I'm not sure if I can easily reproduce
    this! Do you know a memory eater program other than starting lots of
    mozilla's, OpenOffices's, etc.?

    Thanks, Richard
