Name Description
G_MEMORY_MONITOR_WARNING_LEVEL_LOW

Memory on the device is low, processes should free up unneeded resources (for example, in-memory caches) so they can be used elsewhere.

G_MEMORY_MONITOR_WARNING_LEVEL_MEDIUM

Same as G_MEMORY_MONITOR_WARNING_LEVEL_LOW but the device has even less free memory, so processes should try harder to free up unneeded resources. If your process does not need to stay running, it is a good time for it to quit.

G_MEMORY_MONITOR_WARNING_LEVEL_CRITICAL

The system will soon start terminating processes to reclaim memory, including background processes.
