Description Wallace 2019-06-12 17:22:54 UTC
I have some new Dell servers on FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE that are hungry for swap and memory.

It seems like the praudit process just keeps growing in size and doesn't stop. Servers do a similar task but are physically the same. 


 5:15PM  up 4 days, 22:29, 2 users, load averages: 0.86, 2.29, 2.84

CPU:  1.4% user,  0.0% nice,  1.2% system,  0.0% interrupt, 97.4% idle
Mem: 286M Active, 56G Inact, 6884M Laundry, 27G Wired, 1506M Buf, 2838M Free
ARC: 3887M Total, 256M MFU, 3388M MRU, 15M Anon, 37M Header, 191M Other
     3120M Compressed, 10G Uncompressed, 3.20:1 Ratio
Swap: 16G Total, 1264M Used, 15G Free, 7% Inuse

97831 root          1  20    0  7547M  6606M audit_  15  18:43   0.00% praudit


This server had to be rebooted the other day since it ran out of swap space and crashed.


 5:18PM  up 42 days,  3:19, 2 users, load averages: 2.12, 1.90, 1.85

CPU:  3.7% user,  0.0% nice,  3.0% system,  0.0% interrupt, 93.4% idle

Thank you.
