Description Ramakrishnan T M 2005-04-29 06:11:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
When applications compiled on x86 are run on an IA64 machine with 2.4 kernel the application experiences memory growth and crashes. The same binaries works fine on an x86 machine with AS 3.0 (2.4 kernel) installed. The application uses api's like gethostbyname, communicates using sockets. etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create an application as per description
2.Compile and create binaries on x86 machine
3.Run the same binaries on ia64 machine

Actual Results:  The application showed memory growth over a period of 4hours and crached. Memory levels reached 1 GB in some cases.

Expected Results:  The applications should have run without problem. The typical memory consumption is about 60 MB on x86 machine.
