Description

From a user point of view, being warned when the computer is running low of RAM might be useful to understand why some software crashes or the computer gets slower or freeze, and take the needed action to remove stuff or close programs.

Marking this as a research ticket for the moment.

  • How exactly to notify the user?
  • When exactly to notify the user? What kind of memory usage should we look for? What's the limit?
  • Shall the notification be repeated? If yes, how often?
  • Shall we notify the user when RAM usage gets back to a non-low level?

Let's do #10060 and #10064 first, which will give us a framework into which this can integrated and avoid notifying twice about 2 symptoms of the same problem.
