Memory leak in calibre-server?

Possibly there is a memory leak in calibre-server.

calibre-server runs on an unused netbook with 64-bit Linux, dual core, 2GB RAM and 1GB swap space. X is not running. Server load is very low (a few ebook readers).

After some days calibre-server consumes all available memory and Linux begins to trash between RAM and swap. The machine is unusable. Restarting calibre-server solves this problem immediately.

It's the latest version 1.41.0 "Linux 64-bit binary" directly from http://download.calibre-ebook.com.

OS is latest Lubuntu 14.04 64-bit.

I cannot reproduce this. You will need to figure out what is leaking exactly. Monitor the memory usage of the process and make some requests from the server, see which requests are causing the increase in memory consumption, and note that the server is written in python which automatically manages memory so monitoring memory is not completely straightforward as python will not always relinquish memory to the OS completely, so to detect a leak you need to make the same request repeatedly and check that the memory usage climbs by approximately the same amount each time.

The virtual memory size of calibre-server is very high: 2 GB. That is equal to the complete physical memory. Take a look at the output of memstat below.

Could it be that there is a problem with the CPU and the OS? The CPU is an Intel N570 Atom Processor. "Max. Memory Size" is 2 GB. Therefore it makes no sense to use additional swap space (except for hibernation).
Intel Atom Processor N570


Another strange behavior is loading a lot of X-related libraries, but X is not running.

memory usage and memory leaks are very different things. Which one are you asking about?

Hmm. I'm not a developer. I only noticed that my machine runs out of memory caused by a simple webserver. "Memory leak" or "extremely memory consumption"? Both is not OK.

My workaround is restarting calibre-server each morning by a cron job. That's crazy but it works...
