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
Mem: 2829M Active, 37G Inact, 17G Laundry, 34G Wired, 1552M Buf, 2180M Free
ARC: 11G Total, 2290M MFU, 8669M MRU, 89M Anon, 66M Header, 248M Other
8299M Compressed, 20G Uncompressed, 2.43:1 Ratio
Swap: 16G Total, 16G Used, 4944K Free, 99% Inuse
84360 root 1 20 0 32G 16G audit_ 24 58:26 0.07% praudit
I'm also interested in solving this
