Re: (ITS#5860) slapd memeory leak under openldap 2.4
That's is exactly the point. My system is a 32 bits and with 64 bits if there are enough physical memory available even slapd cache grows without never release it will be difficult(or very long) to cache enough entrances before system consumes all memory.
With the 32 bits 3GB maximum, depend on OS too, this issue appears more often. My impression is if you ldapsearch all DB in a 32 bits HW/OS slapd will consume all possible memory unless to keep boundaries for its cache(erase and overwrite).
In 64 bits with a lot of memory this will be more difficult to happen but eventually will happen if the logic is the same.
I was wondering if in a sittuation where this cache memory issue would appear, like ldapsearch, if there is a feature in openldap where it would guarantee the cache boundaries and the reutilization of the space after the limits are reached.
Looks like even with the slapd.conf configurations it doesn't keeps its limits.
