I am trying to find a memory leak in my code, unfortunately it only
happens once or twice every 24 hours. My problem is that its a very busy
service that is running with 100+ "worker" threads that is communicating
over the network and analysing a lot of data. For instance its
continuously receiving about 5-8mbps syslog that is analyses with
regex's and that is just a small part of what it does.
I have looked at the http://www.mono-project.com/Profiler page and that
was a great help, but my mlpd file is still getting too big
I have tried with the following string:
My problem is that even with that I still get a file that is about 2mb
every minute or so (and I only have about 1Gig of space).
I can see that the heapshot is only triggered when I want to (sends a
"heapshot" to the 1234 port), but there is something else that is being
analysed that is taking up space.. Do you have any idea what I can do
Ideally I want to leave the program running for a few hours, then
trigger a heapshot every hour to see what objects that is alive at that
point am I doing something wrong?
