I am noticing kernel memory leak when I am getting a file using ftp.
For each ftp get session, the skbuff_head_cache is increasing.
skbuff_head_cache 17232 17232 160 718 718 1
After getting a 8 MB file.
skbuff_head_cache 18094 18096 160 754 754 1
Finally, system runs out of memory and kernel start killing processes.
I don't think this is driver problem. I can "flud ping" (ping -f) for more
than 24 hours without loosing any memory. I am generating 4000 packets/second
to the target using "ping -f"
I am not sure if there is another application which causes memory leak.
I am using denx 2.4.20 kernel. My target processor is MPC8260.
Any help is much appreciated.
