Also note that if you skew it too much in favor of yourself the system may
end up killing genuinely important system processes instead of your daemon,
no user will be happy about that....

> If your daemon is invoked as a systemd service, you can adjust the
> OOMScore in the system .service file of the daemon, like this:
>   [Service]
>   ExecStart=/usr/sbin/mydaemon
>   OOMScoreAdjust=-250
> The lower the value the less likely the process will be selected by
