- facebook is working on making oomd something that just works for
everyone, they are in the final rounds of canonicalizing the
configuration so that it can just work for all workloads without
tuning. The last bits for this to be deployable are currently being
done on the kernel side ("iocost"), when that's in, they'll submit
oomd (or simplified parts of it) to systemd, so that it's just there
and works. It's their expressive intention to make this something
that also works for desktop stuff and requires no further
tuning. they also will do the systemd work necessary. time frame:
half a year, maybe one year, but no guarantees.
Asking around, I understand oomd only operates at the cgroup level,
i.e. it kills an entire cgroup at once, not individual processes. So I
understand this would also depend on GNOME-level work to ensure
individual applications get launched in their own systemd scopes, yes?
