We are running RHEL 5.2 with PAE kernel.

Hard Drive Type:Smart Array controller
MemTotal: 16633136 kB

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 5140 @ 2.33GHz; 2 Dual Core
RedHat Version: Linux 2.6.18-92.el5PAE #1 SMP i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
We are facing the oom-killer problem recently on our DB server
Error: Out of memory: Killed process 30700 kernel: oracle invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0xd0, order=0, oomkilladj=0
i) the oom-killer process invoked and it kills the process one-by-one it includes oracle, ssh, bash login etc. its because of low memory value
ii) the LOW MEM value gets reduces rapidly when i run Oracle
iii)swap memory is not at all utilised even low memeory is fully drained
work arround we done:
i) set the following parameters
To debug the issue as recommended by some forums but it is not at all solved.
ii)some other suggestion is to set the "vm.lower_zone_protection=100"
But there is no kernel parameter as such in RHEL 5.2. Is there any other alternative param in RHEL5.2 to this param.
If anyone have the idea to solve this issue, pls help us.
Thanks in advance
