Early OOM Daemon for Linux


earlyoom checks the amount of available memory and free swap, and if both are below critical level, it will kill the largest process (highest oom_score).

Mindaugas, however earlyoom does not work for me: my custom app has memory leak and it eats all the memory very fast and earlyoom does not kill it. After this I forced to kill it manually then to kill and restart plasma and firefox as they unloaded to swap and become unresponsive. Very inconvenient! Any ideas? Change some settings or earlyoom just unable to kill some apps?
