SubjectRe: Bad 1.3.95 interactive performance
Date
From
Hiho

Finally I've found out what caused my computer to "loose memory" during
low activity hours. It is the bridge support.... I've compiled it in
(together with most other notworking options) and after about >=12 inactive
hours working becomes unbearable because the computer is unnecessarily
swapping all the time. In my actual setup bridge support doesn't make any
sense because I've only one ethernet card (ne2k) that isn't even connected to
a network at the moment, but I still enabled bridge support to see if it
compiles.
All this looks like a memory leak somewhere inside the bridge code....
Could you people out there compile bridge support into your kernel and let
the computer run one day and tell me if you see this problem too please?
Until now, it seems that I'm the only one seeing it.

Matthias

PS: The last kernel version I checked is 1.99.4 and the first the problems
appeared is 1.3.91 (maybe 1.3.90, but 1.3.90 doesn't boot with bridge
support and initrd so I didn't check this one).

PPS:Stephen, I've patched 1.99.4 with your patch and I will try the
suggested values today (=> I get the results tomorrow). Let's see
if this helps, but now that I've isolated bridge support I don't think
so.
