I was wondering this myself, I know smolt recently had some major
changes to keep memory usage down. Which TG apps are having this issue
and how often? I know MM uses a lot of memory but, AFAIK, it was
determined that there's not much of a leak if there is one and that all
of that memory is actually used.
Looks like smolt was upgraded just before Thanksgiving so it could be
that we've plugged the leaks we had to deal with that inspired me to
write this. Would it be a good idea to have this in place anyways?
With it periodically checking, we would find out that we had problems
when cron emails us a notice that the script had to restart a process.
Without it, we'll be notified when nagios or a user tells us they're
I noticed that mirrormanager is currently at 761MB of RSS. If that's
steady-state for mm we'd want to bump the value the script checks for a
bit higher before deploying it or set different values per app.
