Description Yonit Halperin 2012-05-14 03:21:52 EDT
Description of problem:

When spice streams a video, the memory of qemu process increases due to a memory leak in spice server (in mjpeg_encoder.c).

How reproducible:
Play a movie in the guest. Preferably, an high resolution video.
E.g., play in repeat mode the "Wildlife In HD" movie that comes with Windows7 guests. After several minutes you can see that the qemu memory usage increases.

I've encountered a qemu segfault during verification of this bug, backtrace is already attached. I'm not sure if it is caused by fixes for this bug though.
Comment 11 David Jaša 2012-05-18 11:32:31 EDT
Re-reading the bugs again, this bug is fixed and segfault should probably be handled in bug #813826.
