Host Memory Leak Incident

Back to Runbooks


A memory leak occurs when a program allocates memory but fails to release it when it is no longer needed, leading to a gradual increase in memory usage over time. This can eventually cause the program or system to become unstable or crash due to insufficient available memory.
