Memory problems on Redhat Enterprise 4


We have a Redhat Enterpise 4 server (Opteron dual core)
kernel 2.6.10 with two sata-II marvell controllers.

It is connected via 2 port aggregated network controllers to the network.

For some reason, whenever we perform massive copies (10GB or so) via ssh, the kernel starts running the oom service, resulting in the slow crash of the server (process after process)

Is there a way to stop the oom on 2.6.10 ?
Does anyone know the reason for this behaviour ?

well, this is an unusual problem, never heard of it before.
since you do have the enterprise version redhat does provide help, so it would probably be a good idea to contact tech support.
