[asterisk-dev] Asterisk gets killed by OS due to memory consumption

I just tested an Asterisk server with sipvicious (svwar) and it 
seems with heavy SIP traffic the memory consumption of Asterisk 
increases until it gets "Killed".

I think Asterisk gets killed be Linux due to its memory consumption and 
due to memory overloading (OOM). My settings are:

sysctl -a|grep commit
vm.overcommit_memory = 0
vm.overcommit_ratio = 50
vm.nr_overcommit_hugepages = 0

I think this may be an issue for a production server under attack . I 
wonder, has anybody experienced such a problem in real life?
