Subject: Proc::ProcessTable 0.41 issues negative rsize memory value on 64bit Linux
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 3.9k
For large memory consumptions a negative memory value is issued on 64bit Linux for the method rss(). I can not see the same behaviour for the size() method. Called in this fashion (I know that _this_ call does not work, it's an example): ${ Proc::ProcessTable->new()->table }[$my_index]->rss() Attached is a test program. Called with: uname -a ; ./ 10000000 I get the output: Linux mucsxbali09 2.4.21-47.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Oct 10 18:31:18 EDT 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux initiating '10000000' hash values v/rsize = 475918336 / 445153280 VAR($hash) = 108 v/rsize = 1446268928 / 1415000064 VAR($hash) = 475997837 v/rsize = 2543054848 / -1783611392 VAR($hash) = 67108940 ...

Maybe somebody has an idea how to fix that in the next release? Best regards, Stefan
