max-rss limits both pageable and locked physical memory used by projects, so it is an overall physical memory cap. max-locked-memory is useful in limiting applications which specifically lock physical memory. This is useful because if the project locks up to it's max-rss, there will be no memory left for it, and it will page non-stop. max-locked-memory can be set lower than max-rss to protect against this. -Steve L. > > 2.
