in reply to Centos 5 specific DBI memory leak

Since CentOS is Linux, have you tried valgrind?

It should be able to tell you where the leaked memory was allocated, i.e. if it was from within perl or an external lib.

    I never used valgrind before, so I'm into new territories with this, but I'll probably give it a try.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Update: valgrind rocks! Now I just cannot understand how come I never used it till now ... ?!

    To all the fellow cowards like me (as I guess it was plain fear of yet-such-another-hard-to-use-debugging-tool that made me overlook it for so long): it's nothing to be afraid of! It's strong, but very gentle with newbies too - somewhat like Perl in this regard.

    And yes, it gave me in just a few minutes the information I was trying to find for a few days already: it's an Oracle shared library that causes my headache: libclntsh.so.9.0. Now if that isn't of help, I don't know what would be...

    Thanks again for pointing me this marveluous tool. I definitely became a fan of it in no time.

[karlgoethebier]: ...like me
[marto]: what a mess
[karlgoethebier]: perhaps i need a zerial?
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I think that's a nice contractual trap, "you will not use other gods/engines besides ours" ;)
[Corion]: But if the base intention was to have CIG as "co-developers" who (have to) contribute changes back to the mainline, it makes sense to have them use no other engine
[marto]: yes, I hear that development house has been on its last legs for a couple of years now
[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
[Corion]: "zero monetary cost", because of course, it's gratis only if your time has no value :)
[marto]: I used to keep up to date with my android ROMs, updating to the nightly every other day
