SmartSVN 6.6.12 Memory Leak
Hi, we have the latest release of Smartsvn 6.6 (6.6.12) and we have discovered a memory leak problem. At first we saw that the application was crashing while trying to open multiple project. Sometime after the second project was open, sometime after the third. I change the java maximum memory to 1024m and the application stop to crash. Now we can see that the memory allocated to the application is growing every time we open a new project, but doesn't reduce when we close them. Are-you preparing a new version? What can we do to correct the problem?
This may not be a memory leak in SmartSVN. I am assuming you are examining the memory usage at the OS process level, correct? If that is true, you should be aware that the JVM, depending on garbage collector and version, does not necessarily return unused heap memory to the OS. The benefit and tradeoffs in this decision are not simple, I say this because it is not merely sloppy JVM design.
