Hi Guilherme,

Which orcallator.se are you using?

Does iostat.se show the same increase in memory usage if you leave it
running for a long time?

If so, I would send the problem to se-feedback at setoolkit.com as that
where SE specific issues would best be discussed.

If it doesn't happen on iostat, then if you could determine which
portion of orcallator.se has the memory problem, that would help
a lot.
