huge memory leak in vgpu processes

Hey guys, there is a known memory leak bug when vgpu is used on xenServer
https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX265644?_ga=2.29905535.1915680003.1580113778-318565298.1549894517.

Is there any date given when this bug will be fixed?

Hi Martin

Not sure about the LTSR fix for vGPU 8.2, it may be worth upgrading to vGPU 8.3 if you want to keep LTSR.

Also, vGPU 10.1 is available if you’re going through an upgrade process, and it may be beneficial to move to that instead as it’s 2 branches newer than the LTSR and is supported until December 2020. I know it’s not an LTSR, but if the 8.3 version doesn’t resolve the issue, then this one should.

OK, downloading 10.1, will post result. I hope it’s safe to upgrade it.

Hi Martin

Yes, obviously make sure you’re on a supported version of XenServer before proceeding. I assumed that you’re running XenServer 8.0 or newer as this was the version referenced in the URL you posted above. If you are, then this should be fine.

yes, we’re running Citrix Hypervisor 8.0.

Maybe one more question related to memory leak, is it possible to reset/restart vgpu processes without restarting whole VM affected by vgpus processes consuming more and more dom0 memory? Would that work? Thanks.

Hi

No, you’ll need to restart the VM. If there’s a problem with compatibility, it’s best to resolve it rather than scheduled reboots or service restarts.
