    Another days running and another excessive memory usage level (1.3GB)

    Just updated to the SVN 15025 and testing for today.

    To make it clear the servers run 24/7 one runs w2ksp4
    (1GB mem) the other runs xpsp2(4GB mem)

    Well seven hours later and the TV service is already using 300K and climbing.

    I also disabled the powerschedular as I thought this may be the problem.

    SciDoctor; Have u tried disabling EPG grabber entirely ?

    Try and keep TVserver as simple as possible.
    Also does it happen when the client is closed ?

    The leak is occuring while the TVSERVICE is idle and the DVB-T EPG grabber is working.

    I monitored this very closly since the last post. During a period of continuous recording and timeshifting the memory usage stayed around 350-400K BUT since it was idle the usage has hit 950K in a few hours.

    During recording or timeshifting the memory use flexes as it should but when this is idle the DVB-T grabber is leaking memory continuously.

    Is it linked with this

    29/06/2007 07:51:16 13 dvb:abort grabbing epg


    Which has only started since SVN 14824 which is where I have been ssing this memory leak.

    Iwill try turning off the internal OTA DVB-T grabber (not an xml web grab) and run the service afresh.

    Guys

    I have exactly the same memory leak issue!
    I have just rebuilt (yet again) my complete TV Server, using both XP & W2K3 Server O/S on separate hard drives to see if this was an O/S related issue.
    Over a period of days my memory usage for TVService fills my available RAM (1GB) until the O/S cant run properly and eventially the machine dies. If I go into the TV Server Management Console and Stop and then Start the service manually it will occasionally clear back to around 30MB RAM, but within a day or two it has filled the RAM again.

    I am only running TV Server on this machine and have uninstalled any unnecessary applications or services (without putting the system at risk).

    There is definately something wrong and I can replicate this with every rebuild and it occurs every day.

    Appart from that (i assume to be unrelated) every 17 seconds my CPU hits 100% and this appears to be related to a very high number of SQL quesies running.

    Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

    Thanks

    In addition to my post above, I rebuilt my machine last night using MySQL instead of MSSQL and I am still getting the same memory leak issue :(

    In regard to MYSQL:

    I had sometime problems MS SQL Express using (to my understanding) too much memory, it used up to 500MB. (Of 1GB total RAM available)

    I thought MYSQL is more lean than MS SQL, so I thought to give it a try.

    What is your experience

    Of course this has nothing to do with the memory leak.
    BTW: I thought I disabled EPG grab (as I use TVclickfinder). SO I wonder why observed the memory leak here too (have DVB-C)

    Hmmm..

    Is any of the devs currently looking into that?

    MS SQL has an option that can be used to limit the amount of memory its using (for caching etc.).
