nowise,

I ran your code (after a little clean-up) out to:

Record counter => 335700
And I verified the real memory usage as '1776MB' constant. I verified this with 'top' and with:
'/bin/ps -o rssize -p $$'
I used the latest Debian Linux 2.6.32 distribution and used perl 5.12.2 for the test. I did not use 'Proc::ProcessTable', so I can't say whether that is part of your problem. I also deleted the 'sleep( 10 );' since I didn't see any value in waiting 10 seconds to see the screen fill up immediately again.

Some suggestions:

  • perl5.8.8 is rather old.
  • use strict and use warnings ( You need more 'my's in your code
  • Consider using a 'log' file for incrementing information.

From this test, your problem isn't the hash growing. It could be your system or the system's perl that's giving you the problem.

Good Luck!

Update: I remembered I had some AIX systems with perl5.8.8 and I ran the code to 'Record counter => 10320' and the memory usage stayed as '1940MB'. So it doesn't seem to be a problem on the AIX perl5.8.8 either

Update2: My "MB" in above should be "KB" as the way 'top' and 'ps' return the information.
