Re: Excessive RSS for Xorg
I have read that portion of the README and I still believe that the X memory usage is growing. One of our systems is having the issue right now and the X11 RES size is 373MB, SHR size is 3Mbytes. I did a pmap on the "X" process and found a memory section that is 364056 Kbytes and is not marked shared (RHEL4 does not provide a "private" summary).
I looked at the same section in /proc/????/maps and found it marked as "p" for private.
