"killed" Message - how to trace/back trace

Hi Friends,

When I run my code (its C Code, its quite huge stack with around 10 threads/tasks), because of some memory/task issue I get "killed" message from the kernel (I assume that this is from the kernel !).

Is there a way to trace/back trace the problem and find the cause/location of bug or atleast some level of knowledge by which I can figure out the issue.

Just to add, this is my first question to the forum !
Thanks in advance ! and Hi to all !

There is probably an oom_killer (out of memory) message in "dmesg".
Add some more swap space, and maybe use something like sar to track the memory usage increase.
