Comment 9 Mike McGrath 2007-12-19 22:36:36 UTC
I've got one box doing this when /usr/lib64/sa/sa1 1 1 is being run.  Which it
does, every 10 minutes from a cron job.

Comment 10 Ivana Varekova 2007-12-20 07:32:01 UTC
Please could you test a test-version?

Comment 12 David Rees 2008-01-30 08:04:41 UTC
I can test a test version, I have a machine generating the message "realloc:
Success" every 10 minutes during the scheduled cron run of "/usr/lib/sa/sa1 1
1". Just let me know where to download it.
