Memory not released

Memory not released

Server DL580 g4
ram 8gb
swap 8 gb
hdd 4*146gb

When any application is run the swap memory shows 50% utilization and doesn't release it after the application is stopped.

Re: Memory not released

That is an application bug and not an O.S. problem. What is the application? Is correctly stopped?

Re: Memory not released

what is your baseline?
I mean, what is "free" output before you start any application?
and after your application is started?

Re: Memory not released

Before 10% utilized
after backup 50 %
but the strange thing is tar backup goes off smoothly without locking memory.

Re: Memory not released

can you provide "top" output sorted by memory usage - before, during and after running your backup?
