SubjectThat swap memory leak...
Date
I seem to remember a thread about a memory leak that came about when a
linux machine was dancing that fine line between RAM and swap. I also
seem to remember a patch for it. One of my servers is exibiting something
strange that may be caused by this. After several days of uptime, 'named'
gradually takes up more and more resources, till it gets to around 3 megs
of memory, and becomes unresponsive (named, that is). Could this be
caused by that memory leak? And if so, will it be included with the
2.0.31 release (whenever it comes)? I'm running 2.0.30 now. Here's my
output from 'free'..

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 14820 14632 188 10048 1840 3140
-/+ buffers: 9652 5168
Swap: 54428 1980 52448

As you can see, it only has 16M of RAM (desperately needs to be upgraded,
but YOU try to convince my boss of that.. :( )

Thanks for any help.
