I'm having some intermittent issues that appear to be related to the oomkiller purging some child processes, but I can't see why.
Is there a convenient way that I can suppress all oomkiller activity through sysctl?
I've found some instructions that say these should work, but they do not exist for me.
sysctl -w memory.oom_control=1 sysctl -w vm.oom-kill=0
I have also seen these two being suggested, but the oom killer carries right on.
sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=2 sysctl vm.overcommit_kbytes=0
