Nothing really useful:
769 root 104 0 441M 416M RUN 576:24 20.31% 20.31% XFree86
xrestop - Display: localhost:0
Monitoring 36 clients. XErrors: 0
Pixmaps: 30123K total, Other: 1003K total, All: 31127K total
Glancing through the list of clients, I don't see any that look obviously
wrong. All of them correspond to currently running processes. There is only
1 unknown but it doesn't seem to be taking up much memory:
res-base Wins GCs Fnts Pxms Misc Pxm mem Other Total PID Identifier
4200000 6 39 1 6 27 192K 2K 194K ? <unknown>
So if it's a client resource leak, it's not one that xrestop can detect...
Also, usage as reported by xrestop has gone down by 25M since my post
yesterday (I have a lot less running now), but the XFree86 process is still
at 416 resident -- only a 4M drop.
It could just be XFree86 being overly aggressive with its pixmap cache, but I
don't know how to check that and/or tune it to more reasonable values.
