Subject: [gentoo-user] mysqld invoked oom-killer
Date: Wed, 20 Jul 2011 20:31:19
1 I ran into an out of memory problem. The first mention of it in the
2 kernel log is "mysqld invoked oom-killer". I haven't run into this
3 before. I do have a swap partition but I don't activate it based on
4 something I read previously that I later found out was wrong so I
5 suppose I should activate it. Is fstab the way to do that? I have a
6 commented line in there for swap.
8 Can anyone tell how much swap this is:
10 /dev/sda2 80325 1140614 530145 82 Linux swap / Solaris
12 If it's something like 512MB, that may not have prevented me from
13 running out of memory since I have 4GB RAM. Is there any way to find
14 out if there was a memory leak or other problem that should be
15 investigated?
