KStars memory leak and crash

@Nou, sorry if my terminology is incorrect. Just assumed memory leak is when memory is used up continuously, until the system has used all resources and causes things to crash. Let's not get bogged down with terminology!
As in my original post , I've had several sessions crash shortly after going to bed, and believe them to be from a lack of memory on the RPi.
I say this as I've documented the memory usage fill up, then the kstars logfile stops writing (kstars crashes) and the available memory increases and remains steady until I return to offload the imaging data several hours later.
Since really delving deeper (all the different memories, and purging the caches, etc), I've been unable to make it crash again, and as the nights are so short imaging isn't worth it just at present.
Again, I have a 'fix' that should work for me, but I'm disappointed that I've not been able to find the reason and solve the problem, but it does seem like there are others still seeing the same, perhaps without crashes...

Something you may be able to do to recreate (and what I used previously) was to just take a lot of dark frames over a long period of time, especially if you need to build a darks library for specific temperatures and haven't had time yet.

Otherwise, can just take a lot of covered photos even if they aren't needed for calibration frames; the bug tended to reproduce itself when doing something like that for me.

There are also some ways you can log RAM usage over time.

Could use something like one of the answers to log RAM, CPU usage of Kstars over time to a local file and cross-reference, such as a one-liner I quickly cobbled together based on that answer:
while true; do ps -p <kstars_PID> -o %cpu,%mem,cmd; sleep 5; done | while read memStats; do echo "$(date): $memStats"; done | tee -a memtest.logs

This gives you timestamp outputs per line, which you can likely cross-reference with the Kstars logs; I strongly suspect that the memory increase will creep up after each iteration of the memory leak, or around the same time.

Edit: Actually, it looks like pmap may be better suited for this task based on this thread ; so to modify the above, it would look like:
while true; do pmap -x <kstars_PID>; sleep 5; done | while read memStats; do echo "$(date): $memStats"; done | tee -a memtest.logs

Ok just tested and running heaptrack is quite easy. Just install "sudo apt install heaptrack heaptrack-gui" and then run "heaptrack kstars" after you close down kstars it will even tell you next command to analyze results. Try run one short session with few frames exposed and then longer one. Then post screenshot of summary tab so we can investigate further.

So I tried a varying set of sequences, total after all was 3000 images captured using SIM CCD and SIM Telescope.

Started at this
13863 root 20 0 643244 173444 76296 R 69.3 36.8 1:40.63 kstars

Yes, went -down- a lot after 300
13863 root 20 0 643724 101992 30048 R 5.3 21.7 6:04.19 kstars

( I verifed this, after all the below re-ran with pulse and web enabled)
After 300 coldstart
30821 root 20 0 642988 104668 33792 S 13.8 22.2 8:28.06 kstars
)
Intermixed in the sequences I re-enabled pulse-audio but no Notifications
Also, prior to the last 600 images I re-enabled the web services and logged into port 8080
Also had FITS viewer enabled and disabled intermittently

After 3000 images
13863 root 20 0 645872 98996 37704 R 68.3 21.0 12:50.20 kstars
The image count:
astroberry@astroberry:~ $ ls -ltr TEST/Light/*/* | wc
3000

Then after sitting idel for hours

13863 root 20 0 644536 84824 29560 S 17.4 18.0 89:44.97 kstars

Hi Rafa

you go into kstars, settings and select configure notifications. That lists all the different events kstars will notify about. Go through unselecting the ‘play a sound’ tick box for each entry - ones with it set have a black arrow on the left side. Set another type of notification if needed. Once done click ok and enjoy the silence (might not notice the change with an astroberry :) )

Regards

Nigel

Hi everyone
I don't think this is astroberry specific. Tested on two separate kubuntu boxes with the same result: kstars crashes leaving indi up and running.

We think the leak is in Stellar Solver; removing alignment calls to StellarSolver by using ASTAP and preventing calls to StellarSolver's Sextract from the guider by using PHD2, there is no crash (tested now for 4 sessions of 5 hours).

Conclusion and workaround: use ASTAP and PHD2, but we'd really like to be able to use the internal guider again. It would be great is this could be fixed.
Thanks for reading and any testing you need, please just shout.

Clear skies,
Steve

Reported on the forum here (also reproduces the syslog usb error each time the zwo guide camera takes a frame)

Hi,

I am having issues with crashing as well, it is not sometimes, it is literally every run when I have Journal enabled. So if Journal is not scheduled it works perfectly, when I enable Journal, i get a random crash at some point in time, regardless is Journal running at the moment or just sleeping until conditions met. I even switched to Online astrometry, But it does not help, it just crashes randomly with nothing special in logs... I will try with disabling "Guide" in Journal maybe that will help,

Astroberry on Pi4B 1GB, RPICam

Also another thing I noticed since latest update, my KStars does not get updated from mount in regards to location and time. Mount is OnStep. Mind you might be issue with mount as I have to configure it on every startup, but Kstars never picks up any more. But that is not big issue, crashing is making Journal unusable.

Sorry it is "Scheduler" I have no idea why I named it Journal :)


There are my logs right before a crash:

Replied by Outta on topic KStars memory leak and crash

Thank you Jasem, I have turned sounds off, but unfortunately this has not solved the problem.

I do have this issue now 100% reproducible, but do not know how to handle debugging with this.

I think there is something to do with Canon EOS driver and Scheduler, that causers memory leak, and subsequently crashing of the whole Kstars.

I have cleaned everything I detected it is an issue and I have no use for, so here are some raw findings I found:
When scheduler is running this is normal behavior:
[2022-07-06T09:50:47.598 CEST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.ekos.scheduler] - Capture State "Image Received"
[2022-07-06T09:50:47.602 CEST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.ekos.scheduler] - Capture State "Capturing"

But in crash, after image is received we only have
[2022-07-06T09:50:47.598 CEST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.ekos.scheduler] - Capture State "Image Received"
So no capture.

Interesting thing comes when Scheduler is not running. In that case we get no crashes, and there is no logs from [ org.kde.kstars.ekos.scheduler] at all. So component we need to debug is org.kde.kstars.ekos.scheduler, in time between "Image Received" and "Capturing".

RPi 4B, 4GB
VNC server, Conky & script detailing Memory usage running. Nothing else started from reboot.
KStars 3.5.9:
All notifications disabled
Limited resources mode on
FITS viewer etc off
Not running any scheduler
SIMUALTOR for Telescope (mount) and Camera in EKOS.
Restarting KStars after test (just after stopping data aquisition for above plot) and starting Indi reports 'another instance of INDI running...'

Hoping for a clear night tomorrow night to do real imaging (Steve, I'll be running internal plate solving and guiding so hope to report back with that too) with the cache-purging option which through various tests to date have shown longer runs possible without crashing. Watch this space!
