Description Robert Clausecker 2021-01-04 22:50:10 UTC
The handbook says about the memoryuse field in login.conf(5)

> The maximum amount of memory a process may consume at any given time. It 
> includes both core memory and swap usage. This is not a catch-all limit for 
> restricting memory consumption, but is a good start.

This is clearly incorrect.  The memoryuse field accounts for core memory usage only.  The man page login.conf(5) is correct in this regard.

> Maximum of core memory use size limit.

Please fix the handbook.
