[Bug 1555351] Re: High load freezes ubuntu completely everytime (have to reboot)
This has annoyed me through the years on different machines and on different distributions ((K)Ubuntu and Debian).
I am here because I experienced it, once more, a few minutes ago. Hard-drive (SSDs are silent, but I could tell from the led) usage skyrocketed even though I do not have any swap partition. Mouse cursor lagged, and even Ctrl+Alt+F1 (take me to a console) or Ctrl+Alt+Backspace (terminate X) did not work. I had to hit the power button.
If I can be of any help, I will do my best. This bug is the single worst
thing in the Linux experience that I have ever had.

High load freezes ubuntu completely everytime (have to reboot)
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Whenever an intensive application runs which consumes lots of memory
or hard drive i/o, Ubuntu freezes completely. It is even impossible to
kill the offending task. Only "solution" is then to wait for the
application to finish, or restart PC.
Windows doesn't have this issue as bad as Ubuntu, in that Windows is
always somewhat responsive, and you can attempt to kill the intensive
application to recover the system.
