[from alecf mail] So I was just looking on tinderbox, and realized that our leaks are up to **797KB* *- that's almost a megabyte! Curious how long we had been there, I looked over some of the graphs on tegu, and noticed this: http://tegu.mozilla.org/graph/query.cgi?tbox=backupboy&testname=trace_malloc_leaks&autoscale=1&size=&units=bytes<ype=&points=&showpoint=&avg=1&days=20 That's right - sometime around 8/2/2002 leaks jumped from ~330k to our current ~795k - that's a huge jump! Has anyone investigated why this happened, what checkins there were? -- [from alecf] Ok, so I looked and there were exactly 2 changes: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?treeid=default&module=MozillaTinderboxAll&branch=HEAD&branchtype=match&dir=&file=&filetype=match&who=&whotype=match&hours=2&date=explicit&mindate=8%2F1%2F2002+15%3A35&maxdate=8%2F1%2F2002+16%3A22&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot so its either the change to using the FTP directory, or its the accessibility stuff - my guess is its the change to the FTP directory, but that sucks cuz it means that FTP directories leak like crazy, and probably always have :) [from mcafee] Late 8/1, I changed the ftp url since ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/Welcome was only on one (some?) of the round-robin ftp servers. The bloat tests had all been orange a few days before that, or they were flaking (sometimes orange, sometimes green).
the bug that fixed the ftp url for the bloat test was bug 160465.
