Description Konstantin Olchanski 2005-01-28 23:26:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040806 Description of problem: FYI- on one of my Fedora 2 server machines rpc.mountd has a slow memory leak, around 50 MBytes per month. None of my other machines have this problem (a zoo of RHL8.0, 9, Fedora 1, 2 and 3 boxes). I understand that this will not be fixed in Fedora 2 and I am seeing advice: does anybody else see rpc.mountd memory leaks? Should I try to install the Fedora 3 nfs-utils package? K.O. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): nfs-utils-1.0.6-22

How do you know its losing memory?
Comment 2 Konstantin Olchanski 2005-02-04 19:14:40 EST
"ps" and "top" show the size of rpc.mountd as 60 MBytes. This is not normal. Ganglia history plot shows memory usage growing at the rate of 50 MBytes/month. The only culprit is rpc.mountd. I am presently running rpc.mountd from Fedora3 and it seems to be okey so far. K.O.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 4 Konstantin Olchanski 2005-04-28 19:28:50 EDT
I am running the FC3 rpc.mountd on the problem FC2 machine and I still see it slowly grow, so the memory leak is still present in the FC3 rpc.mountd. I do not see this problem on any other FC2 or FC3 machine and I am now planning to upgrade the problem machine to RHEL4. I am changing the bug status to DEFERRED and I will update it when I have RHEL4 data. K.O.
