Why OOM is killing my processes?



Hi
I have a RHEL4 running on a HP DL580 G4 machine with 16 GB of RAM and almost
the same of swap.

I´ve been observing that OOM (out of memory killer) has been killing some of
my processes; this is a snapshot
of my /var/log/messages:

(bptm).



My question is: why is OOM killing my processes if there was a lot of free
pages?

TIA
