You can't spell KABOOM without OOM

A session at linux.conf.au 2012

Monday 16th January, 2012

12:00pm to 12:20pm (EST)

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.
