    SubjectRe: Severe Linux 2.4 kernel memory leakage
    From
    Date
    The kernel i ran for about a month was kernel 2.4.11.

    Ofcource i am aware that the memory usage grows as more memory is used
    for buffers/cache. (specialy since its also a large file server).

    However if you check my 'free' output, and the ps aux output you will
    notice that the 430Mb used is with the cache and buffer usage already
    subtracted from the 'total usage' (else usage is just below 1 gig).

    Of 430Mb, (counting ps aux res values), just below 80 Mb is used by the
    applications. the rest is just 'missing'.

    So the current memory division is about (sources: application = added ps
    aux output, buffer/cache/free = 'free' command, sysv shm from 'ipcs')

    Applications: 80Mb
    Buffers: 127Mb
    Cache: 460Mb
    Sysv shm: 0
    Free: 9.5Mb

    memory total 1Gb

    Unaccounted +/- 360Mb

    ps, yes i did check /dev/shm, and 'ipcs' and no memory is used as sysv
    shared memory
