I've a system where the
buffer usage is growing over the time.
I trace it while monitoring the memory usage with
# dstat -t -m ----system---- ------memory-usage----- time | used buff cach free 25-08 16:30:51|12.6G 72.0k 2966M 187M 25-08 16:30:52|12.6G 72.0k 2971M 183M 25-08 16:30:53|12.6G 72.0k 2979M 174M^C
(this is an example from my laptop, the system I'm talking about was using hundreds of MB).
Do you know how I could find the process(es) using this kind of memory?
I checked the /proc/xx/status smaps etc, but did not found anything about buffers.
