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?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How do you know its losing memory?
"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.
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.
