The output below is from a fresh vps (openvz) with 256 MB guaranteed RAM / burst upto 1 GB.
What I find a bit strange is the vmguarpages value of 262144 (which equals to 1 GB) compared to the oomguarpages of 65536.
Now, if i understand correctly my guaranteed level of ram would only be enforced when the node encounters an out of memory situation. In a "normal" situation the guaranteed RAM would be 1 GB (though I only paid for 256MB). What's the purpose of such a setup?
