Subject: [patch] mm, vmpressure: add high level
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 17th October 2013 00:43:55 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Vmpressure has two important levels: medium and critical.  Medium is 
defined at 60% and critical is defined at 95%.

We have a customer who needs a notification at a higher level than medium, 
which is slight to moderate reclaim activity, and before critical to start 
throttling incoming requests to save memory and avoid oom.

This patch adds the missing link: a high level defined at 80%.

In the future, it would probably be better to allow the user to specify an 
integer ratio for the notification rather than relying on arbitrarily 
specified levels.
