Bug#889180: plasma: memory leak

Alex Henry
Package: plasma-desktop
Version: 4:5.10.5-2
Severity: important
File: plasma

Hello, I have Debian with KDE installed in two computers. My usage of both
computers is pretty much the same, with pretty much zero configuration
differences between the machines. One may have different .deb package
installed but they are pretty much identical (besides hardware, one being
a desktop, this one being a laptop).

This week I have updated both to the latest Debian testing packages so I know
all KDE packages are in exacty the same versions on both computers.

However, this current machine currently has a plasmashell process taking
over 700MB of memory, while plasmashell in my desktop takes up around 100MB
(or 150MB, can't remember) - which sounds a whole lot more reasonable.

My current uptime on this laptop is 12 minutes. plasmashell keeps growing
out of control for 5 to 10 minutes and apparently stabilizes at 700MB.
This is certainly a bug, especially compared to normal usage on my other
machine that is identical in terms of configuration and 99% of packages
installed and my use of both also being very similar.

Needldess to say, 700MB is a whole lot of memory being eaten up, degrading
performance very noticeably, to the point where I'm installing XFCE as I
write this so I can use my machine properly again until this is fixed.

I know this report without more information is little to go on with but
I'm just trying to make it clear there's an important issue here. Let
me know which log files I should look at and how else I can help with
getting the root issue identified and fixed.

Thanks for the great work, I've been using KDE since I started using
Linux and it's a large part of why I love the penguin OS! I'll come
back to KDE as soon as this is fixed. Thanks to all Debian KDE
maintainers for the excellent work so far!

Bug#889180: plasma: memory leak

Alex Henry
I checked on my dekstop and plasmashell sits at around 350MB of memory use there - but that's after over 6 hours uptime, not a mere 10 minutes or so. Even then, it's using double that amount in my laptop, even when both have largely default configurations and the same version being used so it definitely seems something's amiss here.

Do you have your background image changing from time to time?

I mean, the wallpaper.

Bug#889180: plasma: memory leak

Alex Henry
In reply to this post by Alex Henry
Yes, about every 5 minutes with a large slideshow collection too. However, if I sit on KSysGuard I can see the memory usage creeping up after Plasma has been started, probably before any image has actually changed.

Also, I have the same configuration and pretty much exactly the same wallpaper collection on my desktop computer and I don't have a memory leak there.

(I had made this message days ago but replied to Lisandro only and not to the bug address.)

I have since also determined that my desktop computer suffers from the same issue. At one point it may be using as little as a couple hundred megabytes, and then later on, not necessarily many hours apart, it'll be well on its way to 2 gigabytes of RAM being consumed. It seems to be pretty much random how much it grows except that it tends to definitely grow over time. Logging out and logging in again from KDE resets the memory usage.

Bug#889180: plasma: memory leak

Stefano Forli
In reply to this post by Alex Henry
The bug seems to be still alive with the recent framework version (5.49.0-1) with plasma-desktop/-workspace 4:5.13.5-1+b1.
On my workstation (5 days uptime, at the moment), the OOM's kill pretty much everything, including Kwin.
I can recover the system by restarting plasma, but not everything can be recovered.

I have no screensavers and the screen turns off after 2 minutes.

Bug#889180: Different Bug

Soren Stoutner-4
In reply to this post by Alex Henry
I experienced this bug on multiple systems with rotating wallpapers.  It
has been fixed for quite some time.

However, there are new memory leak bugs in KDE.  For example, KMail
currently causes Akonadi to overwhelm a system (current testing
packages).  So much so that I had to delete my KMail IMAP account and
use Thunderbird if I wanted to keep a system on for more than 24 hours.

As such, you should probably file a new bug report that tries to isolate
as much as possible the symptoms you are experiencing.
