dbus-daemon is consuming a lot of memory on my Debian 9/KDE machine. How can I find out why?
The amount of allocated RAM is not changing anymore: it's stable at well over 3GB. I already tried closing my browser which uses most memory as well as any other applications I had opened (not many). I also tried removing some widgets from my desktop.
I also ran
dbus-monitor which outputs:
signal time=.. sender=org.freedesktop.DBus -> destination=:1.152 serial=2 path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=NameAcquired string ":1.152" signal time=.. sender=org.freedesktop.DBus -> destination=:1.152 serial=4 path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=NameLost string ":1.152"
and skimmed over the thousands of entries in
sudo kate /var/log/syslog. But I still don't see what's causing this.
What to look for in syslog? Is there a log that gets enabled once processes exceed e.g. specified resource thresholds? What is causing this memory-usage?
Should I run
sudo service dbus restart?
