What is the OOMKilled Error in Linux and Kubernetes and How to Solve It

What is the OOMKilled Error? OOMKilled is a common error in Linux operating systems. Linux systems have a program called Out of Memory Manager (OOM) that tracks the memory usage of each process. If your system is in danger of running out of available memory, the OOM Killer will appear and attempt to kill processes, to free up memory and prevent crashes. When a process is terminated by OOM, Linux will display the OOMKilled error. OOM Killer’s goal is to free up as much memory as possible by killing the least number of processes. Internally, OOM Killer assigns a score to each running process. Th ..read more

What Is Automated Security Testing?  Security testing processes and tools help identify security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in applications and software. The goal is to find issues that can potentially allow threat actors to obtain unauthorized access or otherwise attack the tested system.  Automation helps minimize the amount of manual work spent on repetitive tasks, increase testing speed, and extend testing from a periodic process to a continuous one that provides consistent results.  Automated security testing is more cost-effective than manual testing, helping run vario ..read more

How to Challenge Your Code with Property-Based Testing – Part 1

by Luca Ferretti

What does Property-Based Testing mean for developers? Well, a debate persists in software as to the exact nature, division and scope of “testing” activities. We need to check that a particular software component produces the expected output with the expected inputs provided. Yet we also need to expose the behaviour of this component against unforeseen or unpredictable inputs. The first activity is usually referred to as “checking”, while the second is called “exploring” and both contribute to defining the software components as “tested”. The boundary that divides these two different activitie ..read more
