Hypervisor workstation horrors:

Today I learned why recently my primary workstation VM would just die on me from time to time:

Had forgotten to actively set up swap for the hypervisor and had recently increased overall system memory pressure. So whenever I hit the memory ceiling, the memory manager would kill the hungriest process - easily the qemu process for my main workstation VM.

What fun!
