Description youyun 2013-08-11 05:53:30 EDT
Description of problem:
the corosync memory leaks when the peer node stop/start/restart

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

How reproducible:
create one cluster, let one or more members stop/start/restart
then `ps auxf | grep corosync` you will find that the memory is increaments 
every time the other nodes stop/start/restart 

while [ 1 ];do /etc/init.d/corosync restart;done; 

ps auxf | grep corosync 

in NODEB, you will find the memory increaments very fast and will not down forever.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make two nodes cluster
2. let one node stop/start/restart
3. `ps -auxf | grep corosync` to see the node which not stop/start/restart 

Actual results:
the memory which consumed by corosync increaments very fast!

Expected results:
the memory will not leak

can you please attach corosync.conf? Are there any services using corosync running or it's pure corosync start/stop test? If so, are you sure corosync will really never stop eating memory (so every restart means new allocated memory)? Because if it's not so, it's not a bug (there are structures, which may be filled during lifetime of corosync but they are limited in size).

Also 6.5 capacity is constrained so moving to 6.6.

can you please attach additional files/provide additional informations I've asked in Aug? Otherwise I will probably close this bug, because I'm unable to reproduce it.
