Hmm, I'm able to reproduce each time using that python3 script.


> What's yours cpu number and total ram size?

On different machines:

1) old pc, 1 x intel E6600, 4GB of ram (arch linux 4.20.3 distro
kernel), using python script

2) virtualbox vm, 1 cpu with 2 cores, 8GB of ram (pld kernel and custom
built kernels like 5.0rc3 and 5.0rc3 next), using python script

3) server with 2 x intel E5405, 32GB of ram (4.19.13), with real life
scenario

4) server with 1 x intel E5-2630 v2, 64GB of ram (4.19.15), with real
life scenario

From my virtualbox vm, after 60s pids.current reports 7 despite no
processes:

http://ixion.pld-linux.org/~arekm/cgroup-oom-1.txt

kernel config:
http://ixion.pld-linux.org/~arekm/cgroup-oom-kernelconf-1.txt

Using 5.0.0-rc3-next-20190125 on that vm.
