Description Nithya Balachandran 2018-12-14 11:32:58 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1659432 +++

Description of problem:

rda_opendir creates and leaks a dict_t xdata_from_req

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a 1 brick volume and fuse mount it. Enable readdir-ahead.
2. Create a directory mydir in the volume root.
3. Compile the following test code and run it on the volume in a loop, while checking RES in top output for the fuse mount process.


#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <dirent.h>

int main (int argc, char *argv[])
        DIR *fd = NULL; 
        char *name = NULL; 

        if (argc != 2) { 
                printf ("Usage: %s <dirpath>\n", argv[0]);
                exit (1);
        name = argv[1];
        fd = opendir(name);

        if (!fd) { 
                exit (1);

        closedir (fd);


Actual results:
Memory use rises constantly.

Expected results:
Memory usage should stay constant after the initial run.

Comment 11 Sayalee 2019-01-08 09:26:00 UTC
Moving this bug to verified as:
* Tested the issue on 3.12.2-36 build, there was no rise in memory usage after the initial run.
* Tested the issue on BU2 build (3.12.2-32), noticed that the RES in top command output increased from 3.6g to 4.2g, which means memory usage raised continuously.
--> Both these observations help to conclude that the issue has been fixed on 3.12.2-36 build.
--> Also other tests around the bug will be covered in regression and if any issue is hit, bug will be reported accordingly.
