- How can I monitor the memory usage? 8 answers
We had a huge spike in traffic with lots of these errors:
Feb 17 10:44:13 111488 kernel: [8275767.506198] Out of memory: Kill process 20577 (apache2) score 52 or sacrifice child Feb 17 11:02:06 111488 kernel: [8276839.559141] Out of memory: Kill process 20719 (mysqld) score 75 or sacrifice child
As you can see, it's not just one process but both apache2 and mysqld, so I've increased the RAM on the server. How can I check that this is available to these processes?
