disabling and enabling oom-kill option
Could you please let me know how to disable or enable oom-kill in RHEL --
In my system if do cat on /proc/sys/vm/oom-kill will give a result of "0". Not sure if "0" specifies whether oom-kill is disabled or enabled?
Also, if we enable it (change in proc), do we have reload the OS.
And lastly, what is the criteria on which "out of memory" killer chooses which processes to terminate ? ( any info or links )
I could not find exact info on this in google...
