#444 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add low memory handler to flush folder indexes automatically

Reported by: tboeckel Owned by: tboeckel

Release Notes:

added a low memory handler to flush all folder indexes automatically if a system is about to run low on memory.



Large mail folders might keep lots of memory allocated. Although YAM will free this memory for folders which haven't been used for a certain time it might be desirable to free as much memory as soon as the low memory situation occurs.


A low memory handler can be hooked into the system to free as much memory as possible in a low memory situation.

Enhancement recommendation

Add a low memory handler to fire the corresponding timer immediately.

The memory allocation causing the handler to be triggered might not be fulfilled, because YAM cannot free the memory from within the low memory handler but has to do this asynchronously and therefore a little bit later.
