First of all, much thanks to Workling and Starling’s creators. They are
great pieces of software.
I have started to use Workling/Starling to process fairly big amounts of
data, importing 2000+ records of 20+ fields each. It ran great
initially, then it halted my 500M slice. After investigating Workling
was gobbing up memory like there’s no tomorrow.
Workling starts off using 170M of RAM, but when it is used, it increases
memory usage continuously, reaching 900M on my 500M slice. Then the
server hangs due to heavy swapping.
I have tried to look into the issue, from memcache client options to
trying to flush Starling’s cache. Although thinking about it that’s to
do with Starling, not Workling where the real issue lies.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anyone know of a fix?
Is Workling leaking memory or is it Rails?
Much thanks in advance.
