crashes apparently due to memory bloat (perhaps a memory leak)
I'm running Jami on 11 year old hardware with 4GB RAM. My Debian system periodically grinds to a halt with the HDD LED pegged, as if it's swapping a seemingly impossible amount of data. When this happens the system logs are flooded with lines that look like this:
jami-gnome.desktop: Memory pressure relief: Total: res = 22794240/22794240/0, res+swap = 18784256/18788352/4096"
I never really use Jami because I don't know anyone who uses it. So it's always just idling. This bug may be a memory leak and it may be difficult to reproduce and troubleshoot. Perhaps the best approach would be to add a parameter for users to specify the amount of RAM the app is allowed to consume. If it's written in java i think the wiring is already in place for that. I also suggest logging feature that tracks the memory footprint. The man page shows there is a
--debug option, but it does not state what information is logged or where it's logged.
