I built a slightly more conservative kernel (before your reply, so still have
the highmem options) and rebooted with 256M RAM for dom0, 7 days ago.  The
server has given fairly normla performance in that time but just now started
giving me oomkiller again and performance went through the floor as if it was
heavily swapping, but showing no swapping.

I have now rebooted, have installed slabinfo (needed a newer procps) and am
running it, and also now recompiling kernel with no HIGHMEM.  Any other 

If I cat /proc/slabinfo every 5 or 10 mins into a log file then is this a file
that you guys would be able to interpret?  I am concenred that an oomkiller will
kill my slabtop while I'm not looking and it will have been of no use.  I'm
running it in screen, but still.
