Currently I am running LTP on a system(arm) with 128 MB of RAM only. When I run the tests in sequence I have seen oom killer coming on the 3rd test (COW) of mmstess test. As I have reduced the NUMPAGES value to 6000 it was working fine. I have seen that about 56MB is free before starting with LTP and it reduces to below 17 MB when it comes to mmstress. Can anyone please tell me what will be the optimum value of NUMPAGES on a system with 128MB of RAM only, I don't want to affect the intention of stress test by just reducing the NUMPAGES to some value.
