[PATCH -v2] mm: SLAB Out-of-memory diagnostics

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Following the example at mm/slub.c, add out-of-memory diagnostics to the
SLAB allocator to help on debugging certain OOM conditions.

An example print out looks like this:

  <snip page allocator out-of-memory message>
  SLAB: Unable to allocate memory on node 0 (gfp=0x11200)
     cache: bio-0, object size: 192, order: 0
     node0: slabs: 3/3, objs: 60/60, free: 0

Signed-off-by: Rafael Aquini <aquini@xxxxxxxxxx>
* drop the sysctl knob to override __GFP_NOWARN allocation flag.
