I am running latest stable version of Suricata 2.0.7.After couple of days my box (with 140gigs of RAM) runs out of memory or gets pretty close. After a week or so it completely runs out of memory and crashes.
I've ran dev version of Suricata in parallel (2.1beta3) with the same configuration and got different results.
2.0.7: After 3 days 95% of RAM utilization (box has 140gigs total) and 0.002% packet loss.2.1beta3: After 3 days 66% of RAM utilization (box has 140 gigs total) and about 4% packet loss.
My traffic is 99% http and it seems that there is a memory leak in 2.0.7. possible http session tracking??
Does anybody know a way to diagnose this problem to find out what is causing memory leak/over utilization?
