Symptoms

A small amount of memory is allocated and not released each time the statsd process gathers the global access statistic information. Symptoms include a small but constant rise in memory usage associated with statistics. Note: Although the memory leak occurs in association with APM statistics specifically, APM does not need to be provisioned for the leak to occur.

Impact

Over a long period of time, mcpd runs out of memory. The system periodically posts messages similar to the following in /shared/tmp/mcpd.out: mcpd: BUG: tmstat_dealloc invoked on a handle with rows outstanding; release all rows before calling tmstat_dealloc.

Conditions

This occurs during normal operation.

Workaround

None.
