Win7 32bit client: Remote-Viewer.exe listed as having a memory leak by RADAR
Last modified: 2012-10-22 10:16:21 EDT
Description of problem:
On Win732 bit client, in the registry remote-viewer.exe is listed as a DiagnosedApplications under HeapLeakDetection under RADAR, which is a Win7 built in utility to catch applications that have memory leaks.
I saw this in the registry after running QE's test run on Win7 32bit, which includes switching full screen, using the user portal, power user portal, doing migrations, native & legacy usb testing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEVM 3.1, si20
Guest: RHEL 6.3 64
Steps to Reproduce:
thanks for the report, however I doubt we can fix it without more details. Gobject/Gtk itself does "leak", but not over time. This is what matters. You would need to tell use in which circunstances the memory usage is growing. If it's not growing, it's probably harmless, and looking for a leak blindlessly is like searching for a needle in a haystack! Until we have more information, I would suggest to close the bug.
I agree with your comments Marc-Andre. I will close the bug as insufficient data. I will try to look into it a little more, if I get more details of when this happens and how significant it is I will reopen this bug.
