No need. And we didn't want to apply rc in the production.

Actually machine was up about 2 weeks for testing. After
we got to production. It gets mad.

Radiusd, mysqld, named and httpd are the most active processes.

Nothing in the process table generates expanding memory.
2-3 hours ago problem suddenly smears out.

We suspect that commenting in named.conf log options and reload rncd
has solved the problem. Which is bizzare, because we have already
tried without named.


PS: from named.conf
logging {
//channel syslog_errors {
// Syslog logging: typically daemon, if we choose local1,
// some message still go to daemon (bug), so we leave daemon for now .
// syslog daemon;
//syslog local1; severity info;
//category default {
// syslog_errors; // you can log to as many channels
// default_syslog; // by default goes to daemon in syslog
// ignore all "lame server" errors (only do this if none of the lame
// servers belong to you; otherwise, fix them)

category lame-servers{ null; };
//category statistics { null; }; // We don't need stats for this server

// enable for testing/debugging:
//category default { file_log; syslog_errors; };
//category panic { file_log; };
//category packet { file_log; };
//category eventlib { file_log; };
//other categories; queries, cname, config, load, notify, parser,
//response-checks, security, statistics, update, xfer-in, xfer-out
