I recently installed the following Asterisk software from source on a Fedora Core 5 server:
However, I am seeing a huge memory leak when I leave the server running over night. On average I will see about 124 bytes loss every 5-7 minutes. At some point in the night, I will see a huge loss of free memory, of anywhere to 70-100MB. Then the system will go back to losing 124 bytes about every 5-7 minutes. The system will never actually run out of memory, but it will lose all but a few MB’s.
I am running this on a Dell Dimension 2350 with 1.8GHz CPU and 512MB RAM. The system is sitting idle during this time, so there are no calls taking place. I only have about 12 SIP extensions configured.
I am confident that it is not the OS leaking the memory, because I have other servers running Fedora Core 5, and I don’t see this memory leak.
Does anyone know what the problem might be? What logs would be needed to solve this problem?
I have also installed Asterisk@Home V2.6 on a different server and I see this same problem.
Any advice on figuring out this problem would be greatly appreciated.
