There isn't a lot of software out there that will be satisfied with just 640kB of memory these days, but some isn't even satisfied when its given four or more orders of magnitude more memory than that. This talk discusses the task of tracking down one such malcontent within Red Hat, from changes to our code, through tweaking python and Apaches and finally to fixing a bug in the kernel, along with some tips on how to get useful data and convincing other people when they have a bug to fix too.

This talk will be a fast-paced tour of what has been happening in the kernel community in the last year, and what can be expected in the year (or so) to come. Attendees of any technical ability will go away with a better understanding of what's up with one of the largest and most active software development projects on the planet.
