Simple-Stupid user-space program doing "kill -STOP" and "kill -CONT" to protect from thrashing

Project description

The script attempts to detect thrashing situations and temporary stop rogue processes, hopefully before things get too much out of control, hopefully giving a sysadm enough time to investigate and handle the situation if there is a sysadm around, and if not - hopefully allowing boxes to become just slightly degraded instead of completely thrashed, all until the offending processes ends or the oom killer kicks in.

As of 2014-09, the development seems to have stagnated - for the very simple reason that it seems to work well enough for me.
