Description Johannes Lundberg 2018-08-08 14:48:10 UTC

As the title says. 

Name           : boinc_curses
Version        : 0.2.3

FreeBSD jd 12.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #18 bd020f21ebb(master): Wed Aug  8 08:33:12 BST 2018     root@jd:/usr/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/sys/JD-NODEBUG  amd64

I notice this on one machine that has little memory and no swap, boinc_curses gets killed at least once per day:

pid 1012 (boinc_curses), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space

Then I checked on my other machine with swap and more memory, when I have boinc_curses running free memory slowly decreases, about 1 MB / second.

procstat -v <boinc_curses pid>

show an ever increasing amount of PRES.
