Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200131
poor garbage collection in cimserver during Syslog_RecordInLog test eats up all system memory
Last modified: 2014-03-31 19:44:00 EDT
Description of problem:
When the Syslog_RecordInLog is run, cimserser allocates more and more memory
until no more memory is available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run http://people.redhat.com/~jvdias/tog-pegasus/test_pegasus
2. watch `ps axu|grep cimserver` in another terminal
>200M of allocated memory even before the optional Syslog_RecordInLog is run,
>1G of memory is no exception after the whole test is complete.
Cimserver should either have improved garbage collection or a way to limit it's
As RHEL-4.9 is last update for RHEL-4 and it is not suitable for new features
and should address only security, performance and critical issues, I'm closing
that bugzilla WONTFIX. If this functionality is still missing in RHEL-5, feel
free to clone that bugzilla against it.
