Are you still seeing this ? My nautilus memory usage is stable here...
Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2008-03-17 10:45:19 EDT
Well, actually on yesterday this issue still existed so
I sent SIGSTOP to nautilus.

I will restart nautilus and report the result (after I wake up tomorrow).

Memory usage of nautilus

ran 20 hours today.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-05 10:52:30 EDT
Tomas, have you looked at this at all ? might be worth running nautilus under
valgrind for a while to see if anything suspicious shows up

Memory usage of nautilus

And today's nautilus (nautilus-2.22.2-1.fc9.i386)
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-09 12:18:55 EDT
Can you perhaps run nautilus under valgrind and see if that turns up anything ?

The way to do that is to remove nautilus from the session
(System>Preferences>Personal>Sessions, go to second tab, select nautilus, click
Remove, click Apply)

and then run

valgrind --leak-check=yes nautilus

in a terminal

Okay, about 7 hours run results of valgrind.

This is a blocker that's not been touched in 7 days - any progress?
Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 01:43:05 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

I'm having similar problems with nautilus- in rawhide.

I leave my machine running for days at a time, so nautilus just keeps using more and more memory. At the moment it's using 21.9% of 2GB! The problem seems to be much worse when viewing files with large file counts, maybe it caches the lists and file attributes? If so, there should be an expiry time or date for that cached information... Let me know if a valgrind report is needed.
Comment 13 Mamoru TASAKA 2008-12-06 08:06:08 EST
I don't use F-9 any longer so I cannot reproduce this issue by myself...

Closing DEFFERED for now...
