So how can I actually implement a limit on the real amount of RAM (on a

kvm? If you setup kvm and virtual machines to run each individual
process I think you can set the amount of RAM each virt machine will
get. That will at least isolate your problem to a single VM, thus
letting other process(es) run unaffected.

Note: I've never done this, I just remember reading about it somewhere on
Redhat/Fedora websites...
