Description

This is just a report from a novice in such things, but I thought you'd want to know that I'm seeing, in hrev50163, what looks like massive kernel leaking, as I view it in ProcessController.

As I watch in ProcessController, the number just seems to keep climbing. I'm testing on several PCs, and on one of them, it's approaching 1 gigabyte now.

This combines the actual memory use as well as the use of system caches. It's beneficial to use as much RAM as possible, and that's what Haiku is doing as well -- if an application needs it, it's still available for it.

In any case, without more detailed information, this just looks ordinary, and how it should be.
