Troubleshooting High Memory Utilization

If the memory utilization of a Gluster process increases significantly with time, it could be a leak caused by resources not being freed. If you suspect that you may have hit such an issue, try using statedumps to debug the issue.

If you are unable to figure out where the leak is, please file a bug and provide the following details:

  • Gluster version
  • The affected process
  • Steps to reproduce the issue if available
  • Statedumps for the process collected at intervals as the memory utilization increases
  • The Gluster log files for the process (if possible)
