Ticket #10859 (closed defect: fixed)
Memory leak while running a long process in guest
|Reported by:||SamuraiJack||Owned by:||pentagonik|
I'm experiencing a memory leak, while running a long process in guest with:
vboxmanage guestcontrol VMNAME execute ...
My host is ubuntu 10.04, guest Win7. Host has 4GB RAM, 2GB is assigned for guest.
The exact command line I'm using:
vboxmanage guestcontrol nightlies execute --image "c:
cmd.exe" --username bryntum --wait-exit -- "/C l:
webdriver http://local/workspace/Bryntum/ExtScheduler2.x/tests --browser=chrome > $SAVETO
It launches cmd.exe, with /C key, which launches some other bat file. That bat file then runs some lengthy tests. The output is redirected to file (inside of guest, not in the host).
I've choose such design because the bat file is on network share, and I was not able to launch it directly.
While running the tests, I'm monitoring memory usage by the VBoxManage process in the host - it steadily grows and never drops down. Over time it grows to 1GB.
For now it works for us (because we have a lot of memory), but would be great to have this fixed.
