We had a server run out of memory the other day.

OS is RH 4.0

Unix admin is telling me OOS stuff should've killed it, but it obviously did not.

Is there a way to limit total memory used (not just individual processes) or SGA

Anyone has experience setting overcommit_memory params?

We run Oracle 9iR2,10gR2, 10g2RAC on RH4/RH5 and Solaris 10 (Sparc) We use RMAN and remote catalog for backups Received on Fri Jul 24 2009 - 16:22:21 CDT
