Hello Saurabh,

  Thank you for your response. We will check Bugzilla periodically.

We would like to ask you a favor.
  We are also troubled by glusterfs's another bug.
  Can you make a case in Bugzilla about the bug if you can reproduce?
  See below for the bug.

---e-mail: possible memory leak when 'kill -HUP glusterfs'---

We've found possible memory leak when kill -HUP the glusterfs process.

OS: RHEL6 x86_64
GlusterFS: 3.2.5

1. install glusterfs
2. start glusterd
3. create and start a volume
4. repeat 'killall -HUP glusterfs'

Then you can see the glusterfs process keeps increasing its memory space until entire RAM/Swap space exhausted, and die (killed?) silently (no logs generated).

We are using 'kill -HUP glusterfs' processes when logrotate done like below:

Any ideas to workaround/fix this ?
