    When RAM is exceeded then processes are automatically killed. I realize this but is there a way to control or configure a priority ranking for processes. For example, for obvious reasons I would rather see an httpd process killed before my sshd or mysqld. Is there some way to rank processes that are selected for termination? It's not clear to me how processes are selected for termination?

    This is not something that can be configured inside the VPS. On the physical machines configuration is set pretty much to what you want - httpd processes are set to be killed before mysqld/sshd.
