Running 1.8.1 on #1185 I have been tinkering with my server, trying every method I can think of. When I start my server up, no players connected, it just sits idle around 250-300MB. Will stay like that forever. Once a member or two connect, it spikes up a bit as expected. RAM usage will slowly rise, and when I really want it to rise I just have myself and maybe some others fly around which always produces a jump in the memory usage. Once my memory usage gets up to the 1.5GB+ range, I can have everyone disconnect and the memory usage won't go down, not even 1 MB. My initial thoughts was a memory leak, but it doesn't rise either. Just stays at the last max value it reached. I also shouldn't be getting over 1.5GB of memory used with only 2-3 people on the server ... I was using Hawkeye, and disabled the majority of the tasking log tasks which stopped the RAM from rising quite rapidly, and recently I have removed Hawkeye completely just to be safe. Same thing though, memory usage will go up (even if its super slow at times) but will NEVER go down. Are there chunk unloading issues? Anyone else have this problem? I'm running the "Adventure" tier server through RedStoneHost (RAMDisk server, 3.6GB RAM, 5GB burst) so even though I'm not even using 50% of my memory, it bugs me that memory is never dumping ... it's like useless info is just being held somewhere and it won't let go without a restart. If it's worth mentioning, my CPU rarely goes above 20-30%, it's never been close to a problem yet.
