The system will begin refusing mail at 85% of memory usage.

The appliance will do several things:

The appliance will send out an email alert at the System Critical level. Use 'alertconfig' to set this up.

It also sends an SNMP trap if you have that configured.

There is also a parameter 'ResCon' that shows up in the status log as >0 if the system is in resource conservation mode.
