Sorry, I mean constantly increase of memory not decrease. The problem is
that there are too many Samba sessions opened and eventually drives my
server to a complete halt. It seems to me some used sessions are not
killed or freed from memory. Is there a way to fix this? I have been running
Samba happily for the last 6 months. For the last couple of days I'm forced
to reboot the server 4 to 5 times 8( Please help.

I'm no expert but I think samba takes up like 2-3 MB per connection. (I'm
not sure about overheads)
SO.. I think this is normal

I have a Linux box with 512MB RAM and running Samba 2.2.7. I noticed that
memory is constantly decreasing when I typed free. If I run ps aux, I see
that more and more samba sessions are opened, some by root and some by
users. Is this normal? Won't Samba close unused sessions before opening new
sessions? Or is this a memory leak somewhere.
