VeeamShell memory leak

Post by raphael@schitz.net » Aug 12, 2012 1:19 pm

I often leave an opened session with a veeam shell for quickest access but today saw this memory leak :

i didn't killed the process yet so if someone from veeam want to test something let me know quicky because it keeps leaking :)

Yep, the 6.1 GUI has a pretty big leak. The larger the environment the faster it seems to grow. In some cases it only takes a few hours to get so big as to impact performance. I've even seen cases where the memory used by VeeamShell is large enough to cause problems with backup jobs. For now the only workaround is to keep the GUI closed when not in use.
