Hello, I've discovered a bug in DBD::mysql code that leads to memory leak. I have a code that extensively checks $DBH->{mysql_dbd_stats}->{auto_reconnects_ok} variable and perform some queries upon reconnect. The hash structure that is returned by $DBH->{mysql_dbd_stats} is not destroyed after leaving its scope. Here is a simple example: $dbh = DBI->connect($test_dsn, $test_user, $test_password); while (1) { my $tmp=$dbh->{mysql_dbd_stats}; } You can see in top that RES is growing very quickly. I've checked the code with Devel::Peak and finally got a solution that works for me: # diff dbdimp.c.orig dbdimp.c 2274c2274 < result= (newRV_noinc((SV*)hv)); --- Show quoted text
> result= sv_2mortal(newRV_noinc((SV*)hv));
I'm using Fedora Core 8 with distributed Perl (5.8.8) and DBD-mysql-4.012. Thanks for your time and work! Best regards, /grig
Thank you very much for this fix! Will be included in 4.013
