> Hello,
> I have a VPS with 512 MB RAM. I run nothing on it except nginx and a Tor
> relay. The relay is an entry guard and moves about 20 MB/s. It seems that
> the kernel is killing the Tor process with "out of memory" errors. Are
> there any tips for mitigating this? I don't have the money right now to
> upgrade to the next higher VPS plan which has more RAM, unfortunately.
> Maybe there's some config settings that I can modify to limit the RAM
> usage? Or, am I just out of luck?
> Thanks,
> Steve
