    When a service gets killed, such as mysqld, is there a way to find out what user/account may have caused mysqld to suck up the memory and get killed?

    Running CPanel on Centos.

    Hello,

    You may be able to trace it down in the /var/log/messages file. I've sometimes (but not always) seen the cause listed just before the OOM killer.
