# ksmtuned - a simple script that controls whether (and with what vigor) ksm
# should search for duplicated pages.
#
# starts ksm when memory commited to qemu processes exceeds a threshold, and
# make ksm work harder and harder untill memory load falls below that
# threshold.
#
# send SIGUSR1 to this process right after a new qemu process is started, or
# following its death, to retune ksm accordingly
#
# needs testing and ironing. contact danken@redhat.com if something breaks.
