Linux app eating up memory according to System Monitor
I have a Linux 3rd party application that I need to use to manage my servers. According to the system monitor, this application is slowly eating away at my memory. If I run it over night it uses up 90% of my RAM. Eventually, it starts moving into swap memory.
When I kill the process, the memory is never recovered. I was told, once an application ends the memory is freed up, but the system monitor is not showing this.
Can someone explain?
