memlockd locks a list of files into RAM so that if the system starts paging excessively (as the result of a DOS attack or buggy program), the sysadmin will still be able to login to recover it. It will lock regular files as well as programs in memory, and for programs, it can optionally lock all shared objects that they are linked against.
Release Notes: Portability and the Debian daemon start process were fixed.
Release Notes: The daemon now writes a PID file. The restart option of the init.d script now starts a new instance unconditionally so that the new instance can kill the old one. This means that there is no time window when memlockd is not running.
Release Notes: ldd is no longer called recursively, as ldd itself does recursion.
