Maybe it's not the same issue, but I'm having really frequent hangs while doing common tasks or even doing nothing. All of a sudden, everything is frozen. It comes back to life most of the times (not always, or maybe I'm not patient enough...). Can take up to 10 minutes to react again! The mouse still moves and some clicks or keypress are registered (I can see when it wakes up that they have been registered) but nothing else.
Really seriously unstable, a shame for such a distribution that used to be stable, at least for me.
Experienced this in 17, but really rarely and not for long. But now with 17.1 I'm seeing this several times a day.

Having the exact same issue here. Installed Mint 17.1 Cinnamon 32 bit and I am having the desktop sluggishness after 1-2 days of usage.
Tried with the default open source driver and with the nvidia proprietary driver, same result.

I have a similar problem on a Dell e1405. I don't know whether it's the memory or the kernel. I would work for about an hour, and the system will just hang, and nothing helps afterwards. The only way out is a hard reboot. I installed linux-crashdump and apport-retrace but I don't know if I'll get any valuable information out of these tools.

Hi,

I have same problem and Linux slugging quite bad after 5 days, but desktop is Mate, not Cinnamon.
Need to reboot every week. It seems that Xorf -process eats the memory and increase all the time.

Re: Memory Leak Mint 17.1 cinnamon

Post by niceman »

sorry but I don't have the issue, I have too linux mint cinnamon 17.1 64bit, I opened the system monitor, when firefox was on usage was around 700Mb, when idle, it is around 468MB.
I don't know but I think this is normal usage as I have internet. and I definitly don't see any ascending memory usage, neither quickly nor slowly.
maybe you toggled some settings or you got cinnamon on poor computer , I heard xfce is good for old computer.

Same problem here. After 20-40 minutes of intensive use like wathing h264 movie the system just becomes very choppy sluggish. Moving window is like watching a slideshow. Its just becomes unresponsive. But when i launch CCC the problem goes away. Its like the drivers going to sleep or something.

Edit: Tried it again and opening CCC isn't helping. So cinamon just randobly slows down and going back to normal. Happend just a sec ago and i was just browsing through forums so nothing intensive.

Hellou,

I found the solution for this, but only workaround.
See this ticket: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1354350

I reverted from the fglrx (updates) driver to the xserver-xorg-video-ati (recommended) driver and memory leak disappeared.
This ATI/AMD display driver is wrapper, but works quite well.

At the moment Firefox takes ~500MB memory and xorg takes ~60MB. Uptime is almost three days at the moment.

Modyfing xorg.conf solved the problem when using AMD proprietary drivers. Using this wiki page (good read btw): https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ATI

Code: Select all

   Option	    "AccelMethod" "EXA"
	Option	    "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
	Option	    "AccelDFS" "true"
	Option	    "EnablePageFlip" "true"
	Option	    "EnableDepthMoves" "true"
Adding this options in the "device" section fix the problem. No more slowdowns and jerky window movement. System feels more snappy and resposive. Hope that helps someone with the same problem.

I'm seeing this, too, though maybe not quite on the level as some others. I power off my PC each night so perhaps I'm not giving it enough of a chance to get up there.

On boot, Cinnamon takes only about 285 megs, but then it starts creeping up and can go as high as one gig by nights' end. I'm also seeing xorg and cinnamon-settings triple by the end of the night.

On LM 16 and 17 if I closed all open applications my memory usage would drop down to close to what it was right after initial boot. Not happy about the situation, but glad that I'm not the only one.

My numbers were about the same. Switching to Mate got rid of the problem.

I have similar issues. (17.1, nvidia binary)
Cinnamon takes ~882 MB after couple of hours of use. I get sporadic freezes during which only mouse and cinnamon components are responsive (panel, desklets, window manager), apps themselves are not (firefox, nemo).

EDIT
Ok, I have found out that spamming "Show Desktop" applet you *sort of* get your input back, so this is not freeze but some sort of gtk/cinnamon input bug.

Exactly the same error. RAM usage is 2.2 Gb for none of the programs opened

I'm running a new install of 17.1 on a new system with no proprietary drivers and notice a bad leak. I had been running a 4g memory system and now am at 8 and after a day I'm into the swap file as the memory shows 6.4 of 6.7 used. Only have Firefox and Thunderbird open, and running Sabnzbd. I know it has memory issues but I've been running it for years and not had this problem.

Update: just looked at usage and find Xorg was using 4.8G of memory. Rebooted and find it at 150 M.

@Matt832- Cinnamon has had a couple of updates in the last 2 weeks, but none of them have fixed my problem.

After two weeks always on my Cinnamon grew to 11GB usage of RAM!
It goes up about 1GB per day and that's insane...
