Lately I just noticed following problem when using pyLoad (www.pyload.org) for downloads on my MyBook WhiteLight:
Sometimes when I left downloads running, system automaticly kills python process (when I re-attach 'screen' I see text Killed).
I guess that is caused by relatively high sys load time to time by python (used by pyload) and especially automaticly 'unrar' processs.
Highest sys load I noticed was 3.30 (when running 4 parallel high speed downloads + unraring 6GB file), but usually it's average about ~0.4 - 1.0.
With 'top' I see that python uses ~30% of RAM - 36MB)
Does anyone knows where in system is defined exactly value when system kills process automaticly?
Does it is based on high load in some time interval? can I change that (would be nice to increase it, so python process don't get killed).
Is it makes sense to use 'renice' or something else for python to reduce sys load?
Any other ideas?
p.s. I dont want to put python in crontab (so it can be restarted if its get killed). becouse that will for sure broke NAS standby mode, unless I can force cron command to use ramdisk somehow.
