App Memory seems high (74%)

I just logged in to my phone system and saw the app memory seems to be getting high. This is the first I have noticed it, so I’m not sure if it has been that way for awhile or how quick it got to where it is. What would fix this? Will a restart drop it? Is there a permanent solution?

The app memory is at 74%
uptime is 2 weeks and 8 hours
last reload is 2 days 10 hours ago

We only have 6 extensions, maybe 20 phone calls per day, never more than 2 concurrent.

We have FOP2 on the system.

AsteriskNow install (done only 1 month ago)
FreePBX v 2.11.0.11

Any help is appreciated!

Quick update.

I rebooted the whole computer. When it came back on the app memory was at 15% in only 43 minutes it has climbed to 25%

You say nothing of your system or what you added, to my knowledge there are no known memory leaks in php, apache or Asterisk. I would look to any “value-added” software that might be lurking on your box.

Thanks for the reply.

What info do you need? I’m a novice at this, but I should be able to get any needed info off the system.

PHP v. 5.3.3
Asterisk 11.5.1
FOP2 v. 2.26

At 11 hours of uptime I’m at 31%, it seems to be slowing down. Is it just a matter of adding more memory to the computer?

you could start with the issue of:-

ps -auxf

from bash.

and

top -b -n 1

Here are my results

That looks hard to read and it cut it off.

Here is a txt document with the results. May make it easier

good start, paste it all though (leave out the “-” to stop the bitch at the top)

I would disable the webmin and fop2 servers and see if that changes anything, but leaked memory is lost as to the original process that leaked it so you might need a reboot to verify. I’m pretty sure it’s not webmin, but as a security precaution you should never leave that running, just start it when you need it. Your asterisk looks quite busy, and if it is then maybe 74% is reasonable, linux is quite liberal in memory use if it is there.

Thanks for the help. After seeing that report I started looking into issues with FOP2, it seems to be my problem. Stopping that process dropped the memory 5%. I’ll try a reboot and stopping FOP2 to see if it still creeps up. If it’s just FOP2 I can probably get away with how it is. Maybe just schedule a weekly or bi-weekly reboot.

Thanks!

Pragmatically, until you find that you are using swap space significantly, let linux do your memory management and don’t worry too much.
