How to invoke OOM killer for pg process?
Some easy "hack" for test purpose.
Rocky Linux release 9.2 (Blue Onyx)
If you are running postgres under systemd, you can add a cgroup memory
limit to the unit file. Something like (depending on cgroup version and
systemd version the params might be slightly different -- cannot
remember off the top of my head):
Don't forget to
systemctl restart postgresql@15
#or whatever version
That will cause an OOM killer strike at 256M of total cgroup usage (all
of the postgres processes combined).
From there it is pretty easy to trigger by doing something like, e.g.
-- attempt to create a ~500M string
select repeat('X', 500000000);
