Early OOM Daemon


Earlyoom is an userspace OOM-killer which can avoid the system to get into unresponsive state caused by swapping, which is most likely to occur when a large swap is present and memory is tight. It checks the amount of available memory and swap periodically, and when both are below a preconfigured value, it kills the largest process.
