Introduction

Allocate a specific amount of memory.

Usage

Note that this can cause systems to trip the kernel OOM killer on Linux if not enough physical memory and swap is available.

Prerequisites

If you are not using our container images for the extension, you need install the stress-ng tool to use the attack.
