hi all:
     I have a multi-process project, it create and destroy 500 process per
second, and maintain 3000 process, the beam use 900M memory to 1.2G, after
running 20 hours, it was restarted by kernel, and i found error like this:
__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x20/1)

    so, anyone can tell me some information or some tips? May I use
garbage_collect() before every process exit to force free memory?

    great thanks
