Public bug reported:
We are seeing this on multiple servers after upgrading from previous
4.10 series HWE kernels to the new 4.13 HWE series. With the new kernel,
free memory is continously decreasing at a high rate and the servers
start swapping and finally OOMing services within days. With the 4.10
kernel, decrease of free memory is slower and stabilizes after a while.
Latest kernel tested is linux-image-4.13.0-32-generic but the issue also
affects older kernels from that series, tested back to linux-
image-4.13.0-19-generic. No issue with linux-image-4.10.0-42-generic.
The servers are running as OpenStack controller nodes using either Ocata
or Pike UCA plus ceph. See attached graph for the memory behaviour.
