I have this issue that I can't quite figure out how to fix. I have noticed
that after I boot my linux 2.4.20 system, memory slips away at
about 4-10k per second. I have shutdown nearly all non essential services
such as httpd, crond, upsd,xfs,xinetd, sendmail etc. And, nothing seems to
slow it down. I did try run level 1 and it did not have any memory problem so I
doubt it is with the kernel itself, but I maybe within a module.
Does anyone know of a way to track down what process is leaking memory, or
is this just a trait of Linux (which I doubt)? I do not have anything
running that I developed. The only thing I have written would be running
from cron, and I disabled that job in my crontab.
If someone soukld help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated.
p.s I have included the output from free
