Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221102
gnome-system-monitor eats a lot of physical memory
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:09:07 EDT
Description of problem:
after running my computer more then 3 days
the process 'gnome-system-monitor' takes more then 600 MB of the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
start the computer, let the gnome-system-monitor running 3 days or longer
Actually you can monitor the increase in memory in just a short time. I've run
the gnome-system-monitor for a few minutes and it will increase in size already.
We use the system monitor heavily for development purposes and find that on FC7
it is completely unusable due to the heavy memory leak.
