Hello All,

I am aware that using limit I can limit virtual memory allocated for a process, but it results in the application crashing on exceeding the limit.

My question is how can I limit the usage of resident memory on an SLES machine for a process so that if it exceeds the limit page fault should force the process to swap in and out. The idea is that I want the process to still run on my system but not exceed the resident memory limit set.

Thanking you in anticipation,

Arun S L.
