Description Thomas Antony 2005-06-22 11:50:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: I am running a mail server with postfix, cyrus-imapd, cyrus-sasl and mysql as backend. Saslauthd uses with the time more and more memory until there is no swap space available and i run into huge troubles. Random daemons like ssh will exit because of not sufficient memory. I have to restart saslauthd on a regular basis to avoid this problem. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): cyrus-sasl-2.1.19-3 How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. - Actual Results: saslauthd use all available memory Additional info: I have set "pwcheck_method: saslauthd" in smtpd.conf There a several posting on the cyrus mailing lists which concerns this bug. I don't know if it has been already been fixed.
Comment 1 Thomas Antony 2005-06-22 12:02:55 UTC
I did a mistake with the release number which is cyrus-sasl-2.1.18-2.2 and not cyrus-sasl-2.1.19-3!
Comment 2 Thomas Antony 2005-06-29 13:19:12 UTC
Adding FLAGS="-c -n 0" to /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd avoids the problem for me, but the memory leak is still there.

I found the same problem with Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 3 with package cyrus-sasl-2.1.15-10.i386.rpm. I'd like to really solve this problem, not only work-around it. Now I'm testing the work-around to see if it's really effective. I'm waiting your answer ASAP Regards, Juvenal A. Silva Jr.

Postings to the Cyrus mailing list indicate that this is a memory leak in the PAM modules that most of us are using via saslauthd. Would anyone care to comment on that?
Comment 5 Thomas Antony 2005-11-27 22:11:22 UTC
pam_mysql is causing the memory leaks.
