This pull request fixes #181.


I believe this to be incorrect. Beanstalkd will enter drain mode after receiving a SIGUSR1.

Maybe @kr could give some input on this and I will update my pull request accordingly.

@JensRantil is correct. Drain mode happens when the process gets signal USR1. Out of memory is unrelated.


@kr FYI, I just updated this pull request to clarify how beanstalkd can enter drain mode, something that wasn't documented before. I force-pushed the commit. Feel free to merge if correct.

This has never been documented before.

Not updating the markdown documents as I expect them to be removed in
issue #308.
