Re: [Samba] Samba 4.9.4 - high RAM usage - OOM killer




Hai,

How is the swappiness set? 

cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness 
Its probely set to 60, i suggest, lower it to 10 or 20.

That wil help keeping the samba processes out of swap. 
I've see more programs gettting OOM Killed due too out of swap. 

echo 10 > /proc/sys/vm/swappiness 
Stop and start samba


Greetz, 

Louis
