This is strange… When I start Bitcoin as a daemon on my 64 bit Linux server, it eats up all the 250MB of remaining RAM, 700MB of swap and eventually crashes. On my 32 bit Ubuntu desktop, it works fine and stays at 15MB of memory usage. The server is running a 64 bit build of Bitcoin. Maybe there’s something wrong with the build or something.
When and how fast did memory usage increase? Right away, slowly over a long time, or starting at some later event?
I have -daemon running on ubuntu 9.10 64-bit and memory usage is steady.
It has to be something about the difference on the server besides 64-bit. Maybe some malfunction from the lack of GUI. A memory leak debug tool could give a clue.
