Fixed In Version: irqbalance-1.0.7-2.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, the /sys/bus/pci/devices file handle was not freed properly if the directory was not available. As a consequence, a memory leak occurred. With this update, the file handle is freed as expected when irqbalance cannot open the directory, and memory leaks no longer occur in the described situation.

Description David van de Meer 2015-01-03 04:00:37 UTC
Irqbalance contains a bug in 1.0.4 which causes a memory leak on systems where /sys/bus/pci/devices is not available, such as on some virtual machines. The problem has been filed and a solution is available from irqbalance by simply updating to the latest version of irqbalance - v1.0.8

The issue was resolved upstream but the patch does not apply to 1.0.4:
https://github.com/Irqbalance/irqbalance/commit/699deffdd881bf4759f3fcc4d6ee3e018e4c266e [^]
