Thread: kded memory leak

  1. kded memory leak

    The 3.4.0 and 3.4.1 packages on alioth seem to have a pretty substantial
    memory leak in kded. Over the course of a week or so of uptime, kded grew to
    eat up over 500mb of memory, and bogged the system down severely. I
    closed /all/ open apps, and the size didn't decrease substantially.

    Right now, kded is eating 241mb of ram, and I've only been logged in since
    yesterday.

    Anyone else see this?

    Yep. From top, sorting by "%MEM":

    PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
    9379 zack 15 0 2202m 409m 8640 S 0.0 40.4 9:31.38 kded
    9070 root 6 -10 100m 64m 2300 S 1.2 6.4 12:53.23 XFree86
    [snip]

    I've got 1024MB of RAM, so it looks like kded is using over 400MB. The next
    greediest process is XFree86, using about 60MB. Not cool.

    top is not the right tool to measure memory consumption. OTH the xfree
    memoryu consuption issue has been clarified several times. One is the top
    misleading figures, the others is that it counts the graphic card memory.

    I can't confirm (session running for two days, will keep an eye during the week):

    The problem I have with making an intelligent statement is that some

    Er, I know that - but it's still ridiculous, no?

    What I don't know (and you didn't say) is what the right tool is.

    FWIW, I was using `ps axu | grep kded'. But it seems to give the same number
    as top, so... I don't know.

    Anyone?

    It's not. In easy terms: You count your swap space as "memory" as
    well, it's simply mapped into the addressable space of your system.
    It's similar for the graphic card's memory.

    > What I don't know (and you didn't say) is what the right tool is.


    You could simply subtract the size of your card's memory from the
    value you get with top or ps.
    For more detailed information on memory usage:
    # cat /proc/`pidof X`/status | grep ^Vm

    I can't confirm a memory leak either (kded running for 5 days, kde-3.4.1):

    # ps -o pid,cmd,rss,sz,vsz,pmem,lstart -C kded
    PID CMD RSS SZ VSZ %MEM STARTED
    3610 kded [kdeinit] 18308 8821 35284 1.7 Thu Jun 16 13:44:14 2005
