Memory and AIX 5.3
Have installed and used both 9.4.2-P2 and 9.5.0-P2 on an AIX 5.3 (06-05-080
6) system w/1.9G memory. W/each version, the named continues to use more
and more memory over time, until we are no longer able to reload the
server b/c it is out of memory.
Interestingly, when it fails, the process changes from the full command
line chrooted call:
/usr/local/sbin/named -u named -t /chroot/named -c /etc/named.conf
At that point, trying to reload the server fails b/c it can no longer "find" the
configuration file. Although the server continues to answer all requests,
it may no longer be reloaded to accept new changes.
My current value of max-cache-size is set to 700m. Any suggestions or
ideas would be greatly appreciated. At the current time, I am scheduling
it to stop/start twice per day so that we don't have these issues. TIA.
