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?

How do you know its losing memory?

Comment 2 Konstantin Olchanski 2005-02-05 00:14:40 UTC
"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.

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 16:07:33 UTC
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 23:28:50 UTC
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.
