RH3 memory leaking - kernel upgrade?


hi,

i experience RH3 memory leaking when running java application. memory keep on growing.

i am trying to patch the kernel to update 5 but there is problem on the driver on the raid.

the server is ibm x236 with serveraid + hba cards connected to DS400.

update the kernel is fine but the module is the problem.

i would like to try this way:

1. comment the serveraid and hba modules from modules.conf
2. update the kernel with rpm Uvh
3. uncomment the serveraid and hba modules from modules.conf
4. mkintrd kernel-version.img kernel-version

will this work?

since is enterprise environment therefore a bit worry it doesn't work

those who experince could help?

thanks

Are you sure you have a memory leak? As uptime increases, memory utilization (for the system) should go to nearly 100%. That's completely normal and is nothing to worry about - the system is using the RAM to cache things and will free the memory if it's actually needed. If you have a single Java app that is growing without bounds, you may have a problem...but it's much more likely that the problem is in the JVM or the app than in the kernel itself.
