  • Bug 172 - procrec uses additional memory over long periods of time Info: procrec uses Sys::Statistics::Linux, Processes.pm to extract per process statistics. It seems there is a design issue within Processes.pm module which caches each process id resulting in a larger RES segment over long periods of time. We are working with the author of Sys::Statistics::Linux to correct this defect.

  • Bug 173 - jvmrec uses more memory over long periods of time Info: jvmrec in extended mode, uses Sys::Statistics::Linux to extract per process statistics, resulting in a similar memory usage pattern as described for procrec, Bug 172.
