AW: Memory leak when creating several USRP 2objects in C

Hi Eric

Here some information for you:

C++ Code:
#include <usrp2/usrp2.h>
int main ()
{
usrp2::usrp2::sptr u2;
int count = 0;
while (count++< 3)
{
sleep(3);
u2.reset();
u2 = usrp2::usrp2::make(“eth0”,"");
}
return 0;
}

Memory usage:
first iteration
$ pmap 11770

00007f0c6808b000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]

total 57280K

second iteration
$ pmap 11770

00007f0c660b3000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]

00007f0c6808b000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]

total 81692K

third iteration
$ pmap 11770


00007f0c648dc000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]
00007f0c660b3000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]

00007f0c6808b000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]
total 106104K

here you can see that every iteration uses 24412K Byte.

Sample with 23 iterations:
$ pmap 12492

00007f4cdcf22000 24412K rw-s- [ anon ]

total 594344K

an plot of memory usage from 0 to 25 iterations is shown in figure1.png

Hope this information can help you

Thanks Christian for pointing out the problem.

I’ll take a look at this, but it may be a few days.
How much is it leaking per iteration?
How are you determining how much it’s leaking?

Thanks!
Eric
