brad tindoerbox show a massive increase in MaxHeap numbers (from 8.2 MB to 11.9 MB) between 2004-08-31 10:47 and 2004-08-31 13:17 - the checkins in that time frame are the following: http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/bonsai/cvsquery.cgi?treeid=default&module=MozillaTinderboxAll&branch=HEAD&branchtype=match&dir=&file=&filetype=match&who=&whotype=match&sortby=Date&hours=2&date=explicit&mindate=1093974420&maxdate=1093983420&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot I couldn't come around to look into that more, so I don't know which component to give it to, I also haven't attached the people that did those checkins yet, but I thought it should at least be filed ;-)
The times are the report times, not the pull times. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 258832 ***
Hrm, maybe I shouldn't be so quick.
OK, this does seem real. The files updated on the server were: U mozilla/calendar/resources/content/calendarManager.js U mozilla/layout/base/public/nsHTMLReflowMetrics.h U mozilla/layout/html/base/src/nsLeafFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/base/src/nsSpacerFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsComboboxControlFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsFieldSetFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsFileControlFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsFormControlFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsHTMLButtonControlFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/forms/src/nsIsIndexFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/html/table/src/nsTableOuterFrame.cpp U mozilla/layout/xul/base/src/nsBoxFrame.cpp U mozilla/mailnews/extensions/palmsync/src/PalmSyncImp.cpp U mozilla/mailnews/extensions/palmsync/src/nsAbIPCCard.cpp Though maybe Brad did something to the machine.
Though it seems real, since balsa showed an increase, although a much smaller one.
balsa on SeaMonkey-Ports rose from 7.57MB to 8.25MB between 13:23 and 16:20. balsa on Firefox rose from 7.41MB to 7.81MB between 11:10 and 14:31 and from 7.81MB to 8.12MB later, but has been intermittently giving the lower numbers. And from all the graphs this looks like an increase that happens most of the time but not all of it.
I know what this was. (The inconsistency in the times forces our hand.) This was when the mozilla.org webpage redesign landed. It landed on 2004-08-31 at 14:32 PDT (GMT-0700). And the inconsistency in times is explained by looking at the times at the end of the run rather than the start.
We might want to switch the pages due to the variation, probably caused by the JS-loaded image.
I don't think anyone still cares about this.
