Yes, this script leaks quickly. Started out at a RSS of 21000ish,
already at 26744 a minute in, about 5 minutes later it’s at 39384 and climbing.
Been abusing a production server for those simple tests, but didn’t want to run valgrind
against it right this minute. Did run it against the test.py script above though, got this
didn’t like, too long maybe?):
To comment on some other posts in this thread, I also see leaks on my test system which
is running Centos 6.6, but it only has 3 VMs across 2 servers and 3 configured networks
and it leaks MUCH slower. I suspect people don’t notice this on test systems because they
don’t have a lot of VMs/interfaces running, and don’t leave them up for weeks at a time.
That’s why I was running these tests on my production box, to have more VMs up.
I don't think it's related directly to the number of VMs running.
Maybe indirectly if it's related to the number of network interfaces (so
vm interfaces add to the leak).
We've seen the leak on nodes under maintenance...
