We are experiencing a memory leak in nagios when using external brokers.
Description of problem:
The nagios process will grow into several gigabytes of RSS over time, eventually needing to be restarted and force kernel to drop caches
( sysctl -w vm.drop_caches=1 )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : nagios
Arch : x86_64
Version : 4.4.3
Release : 1.el7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use mod_german external broker,
2. Monitor memory usage over time,
Nagios process' memory grows over time, then uses swap.
The nagios process memory usage should remain stable after a temporary startup stage.
Linked comment shows upstream resolution, "added to the 4.4.4 milestone on Jul 24, 2019" but 4.4.5 may be a better candidate ^^
I will put 4.4.5 into EPEL-7 soon.
