Checked my two bitcoin miners and found them both swapping heavily. Rewrote my monitor script thusly:
#!/bin/bash i=0 while true; do if [ "$(pidof bitcoind)" ]; then sleep 60 # check again after a minute else ~/bin/bitcoind & i=0 sleep 60 # check again after a minute fi i=$((i+1)) if [ $i -gt $((60*12)) ]; then killall bitcoind # restart after 12 hours fi done
Hopefully that will take care of the problem. My hashmeter doubled after the restart, and though it's still taking up about 2GB of virtual RAM on a 512MB system, I've still got about 120MB "cached" and a negligible amount in swap.
