PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
31248 root 18 0 28.1g 73m 1772 S 12.8 7.3 14:53.12 ommandserver
how can i free that memory???
If the application runs much more time will it lead to "Out of Memory Exception?"
Virtual memory is increasing to a great extent
there is memory leak check in my application
and there is no memory leak, we are printing in the logs for every transaction
we have deleted every object with delete , and freed the buffers using free()
my Doubt is about virtual memory
what will happen, if virtual memory keep on increasing?
and how to release it?
difference between memory and virtual memory?
