systemd-journald: Memory useage keeps increasing. Is this a leak?
I moved my site from shared hosting to DO + ServerPilot and I love the speed. But now I would like to put 5 websites on this 2gb droplet.
However I noticed my 1 website was using a lot of memory. So I ran some commands and found my systemd-journald uses more and more memory by the hour until I restart it.
10pm last night my systemd-journald used 1% memory. Now not even 24 hours later its using 5.9%.
I ran: journalctl –vacuum-time=1d
to decrease the filesize of the journal but that doesnt stop the memory problem. The only fix is restarting it.
Anyone else run into this issue?
