decimation: is it still leaking memory?
asciilifeform: worth noting that a blockchain, once wedged, never unwedges;
ben_vulpes: kakobrekla claims otherwise, i never confirmed his unwedging.
decimation: I saw that around ~260k blocks that my version of bitcoind was taking up nearly 1gig in memory (linux is not exactly precise with memory accounting)
asciilifeform: and that the most catastropic memory leak, which devours arbitrarily large system in hours, is only triggered full-throttle upon wedging;
asciilifeform: and, finally, that memory also leaks if bitcoind is loading blocks the usual way, rather than from a tame box with fully loaded blockchain ('connect' option)
decimation: which implies that the leak might be associated with the network code?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 33950 @ 0.00058534 = 19.8723 BTC [+] {2}
BingoBoingo: Ah, very interesting
asciilifeform: leak is in the transaction processing code, and is not triggered when loading exclusively from a known-good node with full blockchain.
decimation: interesting, that is useful
decimation: I tried running 'perf' to sample calls to 'malloc' and I didn't see any while I was loading from network peers
