Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 148816
Probable signed/unsigned variable mismatch for VM Size
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:07:44 EDT
Description of problem:
When "VM Size" of a process exceeds 2 GB, it is displayed incorrectly as
a large negative number which approaches zero as VM usage of the process
continues to increase. Feels to me like a 32-bit signed integer is being
used where an unsigned integer is needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 is also affected: gnome-system-monitor-2.6.0-3. Have not
tested RHEL 4 or FC3, or on any architecture but 32-bit x86.
Confirmed that this bug exists on RHEL 4 for 32-bit x86:
I also have the same Problem on RHEL 4 32bit x86.
The Memory and the VM Size are equal, both Values are negative.
Do you already know, when there will be a new release of the system-monitor
This problem should be fixed in the upcoming RHEL4 update
