possible memory leak??
Can any guru's help me out here?? I think i might have a major memory leak.. My system boots up and only uses around 80MB of actual Memory during the bootup.. within 24 hours, I have nothing but 8 MB left a lot of times, and sometimes it hard locks my machine after it runs out of virtual mem as well.. Currently, I am running httpd, mysql, and sendmail (only one web site on this server) which uses vBulletin PHP scripts. I am running Apache 2.0.40 and 2.4.20-28.8smp #1 SMP Thu Dec 18 12:25:21 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux, and MySQL 3.23.58 My machine previously had no problems and ran months and months without using even half the amount of memory. but right now im having to reboot it once every other day to free up the mem and keep it form hard locking on me.. Anyone with any suggestions is greatly appreciated!
I've listed TOP information if it will help?
go to www.sourceforge.net and download valgrind. It reports memory leaks. You run it in the context of another process.
The other choice is to google for known memory problems with the software + version you just started running.
I know this thread is OLD! but I had the same problem and I was sniffing around in LQ till I found you ^_^
Yesterday I was reading about Linux commands and stuff and came across the term "Nice", The lower the nice, the higher the priority of the process
If you're using KDE, hit ctrl+esc to view the process table, click on nice tab untill you get "MDRECOVERYD" on top, its nice=-20, so I thought, the hell with it .. and changed it to -10
* My total memory=512MB ram & 2GB swap
Before :: 12MB free ram
After :: 300MB free ram !!!!!!
Can someone tell me what's MDRECOVERYD doing "pigging" my memory ?!?!
* I just installed KDE 3.2.3 + kernel 2.4.26, this never happened before! my memory never got below 312MB
* I'm not new to LQ, I just never login ;p
