Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
We’ve been going through Cells 1.6.1 in our test environment and noticed that there may be an issue with memory consumption. When adding a few hundred images at a time, the scheduler would extract the EXIF data from the images and make the thumbnails as normal. However, upon hitting the memory limits (8GB) the task would fail and memory would drastically go back down to 2GB consumption. Cells runs a bit iffy afterwards unless I reboot.
I bumped up the memory to 12GB to see if this helps and it does. However, once the task finished the memory stayed at 11.2G / 11.7G used. Over the last 15 minutes memory usage dropped a little to 10.9G /11.7G.
Is there a job in place to help clear the memory cache? It seems like if memory stays high then it’s inevitable that the task will fail.
