this is the context when every thing is fine, because we until this thread
we didn't realize that the server swaps. Because shortly before the crash
our monitoring reported 0 bytes swap used. And at exploding time there
were 4019584k of swap in use, so why can this happens when ech vserver
has a maximum of 3 GB rss settings? In the dmesh output there was only on
process in oom killer. Is there maybe a bug in oomkiller allocating all
memroy and swap on the host?

Short example:

50 Vserver with each has in the middle 2 GB rss.

This is at the end 100 gb rss on the hole system when we have 50 VServer
on that system, with normaly 100% mem used and 0% swap used and suddenly
5gb of swap in use?
