Privvmpages Red Zone (Apache MPM Worker)

So, I always feel compelled to blog about issues I encounter with programming or sysadmin when they stump me for days — hopefully saving someone else the headache if they take the time to Google (with the correct terms, which is always key).

So I’ve been configuring a VPS for the new site that will be launching soon, and I kept running into issues with privvmpages in Parallels Power Panel (Virtuozzo). Virtuozzo would report privvmpages in the red zone — 370,614 pages of 393,216. Yet, oomguarpages would be completely fine, normal and low. I could not figure out what the deal was, and services were getting killed left and right.
