Description Honza Horak 2012-11-30 04:30:14 EST
Description of problem:
I've had virt-manager running for few days (including suspending) and did approx. 10 actions like start/stop VM (VM were RHEL-5, RHEL-6, Fedora). Finally there is no running VM, but virtual-manager still consumes a huge amounts of memory and even consumes quite a lot processor time:

hhorak    8151  3.8 16.0 1567028 617416 ?      Ssl  Nov27 166:06 python /usr/share/virt-manager/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
usually after several days of running

Steps to Reproduce:
1. work with virt-manager few days (start/stop VMs)
2. do some suspends
3. see virt-manager's consumed memory
Actual results:
virt-manager consumes over 500MB when no VM is running any more

Expected results:
virt-manager consumes say 50MB, like when it is fresh started
