Re: [opensuse] Problem with system suddenly swapping with large amount of ram (seems a memory leak?)
Sorry Richard that went out as PM against my intention. So again to the list
as it would have been correct.
My apologies.

Since the update to Leap 15, the longer my system runs, the more memory it
consumes. I tried to track this but I do not understand.
Following is the output of the terminal of meminfo and I join also a link
with the output (snapshot) of top.

Note that the system has 8 gb of RAM and should never swap. Currently it
does swap until it blocks. If you restart the swap returns to normal..for
some time. Then, (seems related with the time that it runs therefore I
thought of a memory leak) it rebuilds up the swap demand.

48.76% of your RAM being used by kontact

I'm pretty sure that's your leaking process

I was not sure by I think you confirm my doubts. Does this warrant a bug
report? Against leap or against KDE directly. And most importantly, how can
one know what component of kontact is leaking?

Sorry that I ask all this but I want to avoid useless reports.
Thanks in advance.

BTW, I tried to close kontact with "exit" but the swap stays once it
accumulated. Do I have to issue a command to "unswap" the memory?
