What appears to be a memory leak using Reuters RFA7.4.1.L1.win.
The issue can be duplicated using the StarterConsumer Example program. We used
the VS100_Shared project. We are using RSSL. We set the \itemList configuration parameter
in the StarterConsumer.cfg file to a list of actively traded instruments:
\itemList = "GE,DIS,AAPL,HD,BAC,T,FCX"
We then start the Release_WIN32_VS100_Shared\StarterConsumer.exe application from the
command prompt and bring up task manager. The memory used by StarterConsumer continues
to grow and never stablizes or shrinks.
We also tried changing: void StarterConsumer::processEvent(const Event& event) so that
it does not call processOMMItemEvent(...) on the theory that this routine (or perhaps
one it calls, like the Decoder) wasleaking the memory.
The process still leaked memory at the same rate. Note that the amount of memory leaked, and the speed at
which it is leaked is directly related to market activity. The more active the market (and
the instruments being watched), the faster the amount of memory used increases.
We also tried to change the message pool memory parameters from:
\Control\MessagePools\OMMItemEventPool\InitialSize = 10000
\Control\MessagePools\OMMItemEventPool\Increment = 10000
\Control\MessagePools\OMMItemEventPool\MaximumSize = 0
\Control\MessagePools\OMMItemEventPool\InitialSize = 100
\Control\MessagePools\OMMItemEventPool\Increment = 100
\Control\MessagePools\OMMItemEventPool\MaximumSize = 100
This did not change the behavior..
Any help is appreciated.
