I'm trying to use the systemd infrastructure to kill my memory leaking service when its memory usage reaches some value. The configuration file used is this:
[Unit] Description="Start memory gobbler" After=network.target MemoryAccounting=true MemoryHigh=1024K MemoryMax=4096K [Service] ExecStart=/data/memgoble 8388600
systemd version is 237.
However, no matter what I set in the
MemoryMax the kernel would kill the process on its own terms, usually when its memory consumption reaches almost the entire physical RAM. I'm running this on an embedded system with no swap.
Anyone sees an obvious error in the configuration? Perhaps there are some other settings that I'm missing.
