Glusterfs fuse client consuming high memory - memory leak

+4 votes

I have set up my glusterfs cluster as Striped-Replicated on GCP Servers, but I am facing memory leak issue with Glusterfs fuse client. Its memory consumption is increasing every day.

Both glusterfs server and glusterfs fuse client is using the latest version(Client-4.1.5, Server- 4.1), but the below process is consuming high memory on the client servers.

glusterfs --fopen-keep-cache=off --volfile-server=gluster1 --volfile-id=/+ 

Every day I can see that memory consumption of the above process is increasing, a temporary fix is to unmount and kill the process.

In my glusterfs client server, I am getting 'Stale File Handle error'. Not sure this error caused the memory leak.

[2018-10-21 04:08:46.921985] W [fuse-bridge.c:1201:fuse_setattr_cbk] 0-glusterfs-fuse: 3705309: SETATTR() /Production/ => -1 (Stale file handle)

Also, my glusterfs server is using default settings. Please help if there is any patches or fix.

Thank you, let me downgrade it.
I think 3.12.6. is not available to download, can I use 3.12.15 ? I am using ubuntu client machines.
Try 3.12.8 if .6 is not possible.
@kalgi, It is also not available

Available versions are .15, .12, .5

'Stale File Handle error' occurs when the directory is deleted. So basically the pointer your shell has to that particular inode does not exist. It's just a way system treats the invalid inode pointers. In your case, I think this error occurs because you're unmounting and killing the process.

Okay, that is inode issue. We used unmounting to temporarily fix the load issue
