Killed: out of swap space



  • Hello,

    I have an Atom board on 2.2 embedded/NanoBSD with 3 gigabit interfaces running a DMZ, 100 Mbit WAN and a Gbit LAN (trunk port). The server has 4GB of RAM and after a month or two of uptime I start seeing this in the logs:

    kernel: pid 50567 (charon), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space

    I'm looking at the status dashboard and I've never seen memory usage go over 7% of the 4GB. Last night the box completely died, and when I went to reboot the USB drive was corrupt. I had to re-image it and restore a config from backup.

    It seems there is a hard cap on how much RAM the embedded version can access or something similar. Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix it?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.
