so I think I have a memory leak or a borked kernel?


So as far as I can tell from the logs, there is an issue with somehow running out of memory, causing a performance issue and lagging the hell out of my computer seemingly randomly.

I have 32 gigs of ram. Unless I'm using a VM, I don't really go above 4 gigs of memory usage. There is also a swapfile present. Currently 336/976 MB.

I don't understand why this is happening. The most intensive thing it does is crunch SETI with dual GPUS when its idle.

Any thoughts?

Logs can be found here

It's all there in the kernel log - second last line:
Quote:
Killed process 15495 (trinity-main) total-vm:29374560kB, anon-rss:28761584kB, file-rss:908kB, shmem-rss:24kB
See that anon-rss ?. That's RAM in use.

Run Memtest to see if the RAM is bad:-
