zencommand suddenly using high amounts of memory

  • 1.  zencommand suddenly using high amounts of memory

    Posted 14 days ago
    So suddenly about a month ago our zencommand process went from around 5GB memory to 15GB memory. I recycle and it helps, for a little while. How high should this be set to? What would cause it to suddenly use so much memory?

    A few thoughts...
    Doesn't look like the number of devices polled has changed over the last few hours but has it grown substantially over the last month?

    Check zencommand .log to see if there are significant timeouts going on which might result in lots more processes actually running at one time and in zencommand checking threads to see if an answer has been received.

    Do you have "top" records for your Zenoss server to see if anything else has changed?

    What happened in your Zenoss world "about a month ago" that might have caused this?  Extra devices added?  "Big" devices added eg. big routers with lots of interfaces, VMware devices added?  New ZenPack or version of ZenPack installed eg. updated Linux ZenPack?
