[LON-CAPA-admin] Runaway memory?

Has anyone had any runaway memory events on their access servers?

The out of memory killer killed my processes running on one of our
access servers during a moderately high load time. I'm running a
reasonably up to date CENTOS 5 version (the latest kernel update has not
yet been installed).

This may be concurrent with students trying to upload large files for a
lab report.

The memory started spiking about an hour before the crash. I began
getting lowmem_reserve errors on the console.

Any advice is welcome!
