FPC-USB-HID
« on: April 05, 2017, 06:49:09 am »
Hi all

I have download FPC-USB-HID and compile a demo app for windows. I let it run for 24 hours and see that the memory is stable, however if i compile it to run on a raspberry pi ( the same demo app) the memory grows. Looks like there is a memory leak.

Does anyone have the same issue ? Is there a different HID Lib that can be used ?

Thanks

The lib has been tested very well on RPi, and should not cause any memory leaks.
Please use the heaptrc-option (or -gh) in Lazarus to check for leaks.

Other libs:

Do you have something else running 24X7? Because, like DonAlfredo wrote as well, I use that code and can't replicate it.
Are you sure, absolutely definitely sure that nothing else causes it?

And yes, try -gh or better -glh (includes the line number that causes possible grief)

For good measure: which version of FPC are you using?

Hi DonAlfredo,

I use htop, and it also show that the memory goes up. heaptrc-option report nothing , no leaks , but it does not explain why the memory goes up.  I tested the app last night with the starting memory of 27mb and at 06:18 the memory was standing on 34mb.

If i use the same app and compile it for windows the memory does not increase at all. I download a program Solarpiplog for Raspberry pi develope by someone else and after 24 hours the app memory stays the same on the pi

@JohnSmith
Let the program run longer and see what happens.

I have a RPi running now for 34 weeks 24/7 (no restart) with this lib without problems.

About the same here....? Can you give us some more info?
I have lot's of Pi's to test, but as it stands your issue is not reproducible (you changed the code of the example? Not at all?)

Thanks for all the feedback.

What do you need from me, Access to the Pi to see or uploading of the code. I have run the program before for a week and the memory was about 200mb. I am using Lazarus 1.6.

I believe it is a program (sample ) that DonAlfredo did for someone ? I got the sample from a forum called powerforum. Its said that there is a memory leak , so i have tested it and now reporting it here

That is good info !

Did you get the latest library from GitHub ?
https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/FPC-USB-HID

Because you are right: there were mem-problems, but they should be solved !!

Could you see anything wrong with the source code?

How do I donate to this project ?

Thanks
