Thread: Transmission memory usage

    Transmission memory usage

    I've noticed that after couple of weeks run the latest optware transmission (2.41-1, but had similar issues with earlier ones) eats up too much memory (RT-N16, 1.9.2.7-rtn-r3497).
    In fact it starts to impact performance after some time (e.g. NFS goes only half speed).

    ps -A --sort -rss -o comm,pmem,rss,vsz | head -n 6
    gives e.g. the following result:
    Code:
    COMMAND         %MEM   RSS    VSZ
    transmission-da 53.4 67804 146708
    transmission-da 53.4 67804 146708
    transmission-da 53.4 67804 146708
    transmission-da 53.4 67804 146708
    tor              4.3  5456  14640
    Checking which part of Transmission takes the memory, it's heap:
    cat /proc/$(ps afx | sed -n 's/[^0-9]*\([0-9]*\).*transmission\-daemon.*/\1/p' | sed -n '1p')/smaps | awk 'N
    R%8==1,NR%8==3'

    Code:

    Anyone having similar experience?
    Any solution beyond restarting Transmission here and there (which seems to fix it, so it's not traffic or file set size related).
