Summary0001367: Potential memory leak in bareos-fd in version 20.0.1
DescriptionOn big systems (~17TB Disk with 24million inodes) the bareos-fd is consuming a lot of ram. Restarting the client works in the short run but the problem is there after the next run.
I thought the ram usage of the bareos-fd would decrease after all jobs have finished but it doesnt.
On the system mentioned above bareos-fd takes 5-8GB of RAM doing nothing.
It is a simple file backup with no plugins using accurate mode. The only special is that the partition is split up in multiple jobs.

top line:
 51768 root 20 0 6462352 5,197g 0 S 0,0 33,2 57:29.76 bareos-fd

Any idea how to track this done?
