bitcoind runs without memory leak, but memory usage is high (1.2 GB on my setup, uptime 100 days now).

100 days so you are using an older version?

I see 300-400MB usage.

Just to put it into perspective, chrome uses 3000MB at the moment (lots of open tabs).

0.8.1 and 0.8.2 is vulnerable to a memory exhaustion attack. It's highly advised to update.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

It's behind firewall, is the attack still possible then?

Just want to add that previously I wrote that my bitcoind version 0.8.3 crashed and I suspected it was because of OOM error. But now I think that isn't the case. I think it ran out of disk space. I've freed up space and restarted bitcoind. Only time will tell how long it stays up.

How is it running at the moment for you?

My bitcoind is also consuming more and more memory over the time... 590 mb usually.. and then growing growing up to more than 1 gb after some days..

Anybody knows how to prevent this?
I set maxconnections to 20, but it didnt change anything..

connections do not increase memory usage that much. the biggest factor in usage increase is the growing memory pool for transactions. there is no way to clear the memory pool, or set a limit for it. the only remedy is increasing ram capacity, increasing swap, or restarting the daemon regularly.

Even after restarting?
Do you know if the new version 0.8.6 has the same problems?

Within the last days, the memory consumption is increasing on my system.. I have to restart the bitcoin daemon every day now :S

ok, 780MB after restarting, still too much imo
what are they storing, tx cache? DB cache? doesn't make sense
