Description David Nielsen 2007-03-11 01:17:31 UTC
Description of problem: I noticed that yum-updatesd goes totally out of control and gobbles up a lot of memory lately. E.g. it's currently registered as using 139MB of memory according to gnome-system-monitor. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): yum-updatesd-3.1.4-1.fc7 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. enable yum-updatesd

We observe similar behavior in yum-updatesd-3.0.5-1.fc6 on i386. The yum- updatesd process grows by approx 6MB on every run_interval cycle. This behavior is consistent among several machines over a twenty-four hour period.

Last week's update to yum-3.0.5-2.fc6 and yum-updatesd-3.0.5-2.fc6 did not alleviate the problem. Also, why did the update not remove yum-3.0.5-1.fc6 and yum-updatesd-3.0.5-1.fc6?

I've noticed the same thing. yum-3.0.5-1.fc6 and yum-updatesd-3.0.5-1.fc6 didn't go away... I've got both the 3.0.5 and 3.0.6 packages. Top's sort-by-memory view is scary: PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 2923 root 15 0 596m 327m 4748 S 0 32.8 0:15.47 yum-updatesd I have a gig of memory... why is yum-updatesd taking 1/3rd of my system memory? I've seen it go up to 40 percent. This needs to be addressed! I've removed the 3.0.5 versions, and made sure the 3.0.6 packages verify... I'll keep this bug posted as to if that helps solve the terrible memory consumption.

Yesterday's updates to yum-3.0.6-1.fc6 and yum-updatesd-3.0.6-1.fc6 have not alleviated the memory leak. The yum-updatesd process still leaks approx 6MB on every run_interval cycle. Once again, the RPM package did not remove the previous version.

All the comments seem to be against the FC6 version of yum but I opened the bug against the F7 version. This seems to be behaving a whole lot better than it used to. As this is blocking F7 more feedback on the current usage of yum-3.1.7-2.fc7 or above would be nice so that this bug could potentially be closed.
