|0006907||Kali Linux||General Bug||public||2020-12-06 12:48||2022-12-07 16:36|
|Summary||0006907: System Run Away while working with GVM 20.8|
System run away while working with GVM 20.8 which consumes all RAM and fills up complete swap space. In this situation complete system is inaccessible.
|Steps To Reproduce|
In my case I have a scan with about 2500 results in a single report.
Bug 0006763 is still there, but with GVM 20 and PostgrSQL 13.
It seems, that old database searches are still running (the page is still loading) and new searches are added to them.
I think we need an additional function which interrupts old, no longer needed searches when the specific user is starting a new search by changing filter directives.
I was able to get a result of top short before the run-away:
%Cpu(s): 0.5 us, 16.5 sy, 0.0 ni, 0.0 id, 82.7 wa, 0.0 hi, 0.3 si, 0.0 st
191972 _gvm 20 0 11.6g 5.2g 1392 S 39.8 33.6 0:31.21 gsad
It's a matter of some seconds. Now we see that gsad is consuming the memory and filling up swap space. Does we have some kind of memory leak?
The result of top of note #0013956 was taken after login to GSA and complete load of default dashboard.
You can test this tip:
This ticket 0006907 is about extreme RAM/swap consumption. While swapping the CPU load is also extreme because of swapping, but the main cause is the extreme RAM consumption of gsad. The system where I see the problem has 16 GB RAM and gsad is consuming all swap up to 32 GB so that gsad consumes in total 48 GB memory while it's normal operation.
This report has been filed against an old version of Kali. We will be closing this ticket due to inactivity.
Please could you see if you are able to replicate this issue with the latest version of Kali Linux (https://www.kali.org/get-kali/)?
If you are still facing the same problem, feel free to re-open the ticket. If you choose to do this, could you provide more information to the issue you are facing, and also give information about your setup?
