fyi: there's a memory leak in the fileserver in the just released Samba 4.6.0 that affects
anyone using aio.
Again, this only affects you if you use
aio read size > 0
aio write size > 0
During read and write operation smbd will leak memory allocated by worker
threads, the amount of memory leaked over time depends on the IO pattern.
Samba 4.6.1 will ship a fix for this, patches are also available at the
Until then the workaround is to disable aio by removing the aio read|write
settings from smb.conf.
