Hello,

Do you know how can I log the process list in /var/log/messages when OOM-killer are invoked? like you can see in this post [1].

In the last days I saw several "Out of memory" in some of our servers.

Yes, but there is no info about the process list. I am looking to get the process list:

Hello,

Thank you for clarifying. Including a copy of the process list at the time OOM-killer is invoked would like require some custom bash scripting. I suggest posting on a website such as StackOverflow or the CentOS forums, as you are more likely to receive user-feedback on operating system related information on one of those websites. We provide a list of companies offering system admin services on the following URL as well:

Thank you.
