Memory leaks

Hi,

we have RT 3.8.1 installed with mod_perl 2.0.4 on a Red Hat ES5 system, and
using Oracle as a database.

I have noticed a lot of memory leaks on the part of the apache processes. It
seems they grow by 2 to 5K for every page request against RT, and about 10K
for every email loaded by rt-mailgate.

I had to reduce the number of request served by apache before restarting a
process, just to keep the memory usage under control.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks

I’d recommend instrumenting webmux.pl with Devel::Gladiator to figure
out what objects are leaking. That’s the right first step to properly
fixing things.
