comment Unix sort out of memory
I fail to see the relevance of your comment. Disabling OOM-killer will not solve the problem, which is: sort uses/needs too much memory. With overcommit_memory=2, sort will just fail to malloc() and will very probably fail to sort, then.

We are not doing your homework. We are not at your service to "hurry" for you. Please search elsewhere. @Minix is too kind to you, editing your post to add politeness and remove rudeness.

comment How to avoid apache reload when rotating logs?
@harp be careful, logrotate doc says: "Note that there is a very small time slice between copying the file and truncating it, so some logging data might be lost."
