pete_dushenski: brg444: well how's winter been treating you thus far ?
brg444: well temperature today was in the 50s so can't really call it winter yet

brg444: I was always curious, where did you pick up this french from?
pete_dushenski: this french ? like my french or the quote ?
brg444: sorry, yes, your french
pete_dushenski: aha. i attended french immersion through to grade 5, which really isn't much, but my mother also grew up on montreal and we spoke a bit of french at home. i've also visited montreal at least once a year since i was born, so i've always had a bit of a refresher when out in public. lastly, i joined a french-catholic choir last year and they speak and write in french exclusively.
pete_dushenski: that, plus some spanish classes in high school helped to flesh out my latin-language base.
pete_dushenski: i also have a couple friends who also attended french immersion, but through to grade 12, and we occasionally exchange a few sentences, which is better than nothing :)
pete_dushenski: and now, as i speak it out loud to mein heir on a daily basis, i'm practicing more than i have since i was 10 years old !

brg444: that's great. I guess that's better than 99% of english speaking canada can pretend to
pete_dushenski: that's a plausible enough figure :)
brg444: I'm guessing you also dared take the plunge into the literature as well? (Bastiat, etc.)

BingoBoingo: jurov: deedbot- didn't get the title update.
jurov: oh corpses were updated
BingoBoingo: Yeah
BingoBoingo: Well, not confirmed courpses yet. Local news has stopped referring to the officers though as "wounded" and has transitioned to "shot" to describe their condition
trinque: damn christians wont get uppity about anything other than than abortions.
phf: jurov: so original interpretation was that mapTransactions.clear(); doesn't deallocate individual instances (i.e. boost doesn't do the right thing), attempting to iterate over mapTransactions and do explicit del on instances results in crash. so the new assumption was that mapTransactions instances are somehow used elsewhere. i don't think there's much else insight on the subject
BingoBoingo: trinque: Could be just angry over political health clinic spam
trinque: lol
trinque: poor guy's @aol.com overfloweth
jurov: phf but it's std::map not some boostism
jurov: are you telling me boost modifiest std:: stuff behavior?
phf: jurov: you know how it is here, there's one small problem, gets elevated to shitgnomes in all the things!!1 status ☟︎
phf: jurov: the overal goal though is to flush the mempool, but simply measuring the memory between zapmempool shows that the patch specifically doesn't do it. there's either additional source of leak, or there's a leak in mempool, or, and that's the most likely case, the patch in question doesn't touch al lthe places where mempool has data
jurov: ikr? but i'd like to see some closer dissection. like, how did you determine clear() does not work
jurov: i just added CTransaction destructor with debug print, and it is called ☟︎
phf: jurov: clear not working is my broken telephone of that ascii was saying in the logs. i've only gotten as far as making sure that the code ~seems~ to be working, hence my conclusion, which is that mempool is somehow not just mapTransactions & mapNextTx
phf: but for all i know there's all kinds of other sources of leak. the general idea is that btcd without mempool memory use should stay constant when the blockchain is not growing. any kind of memory growth is from mempool adding more transactions. so it stands to reason that a fully working zapmempool should always bring btcd back to some baseline number, but that's not happening.
phf: last conversation on the subject was mp saying basically, people are welcome to investigate and plug that hole

phf: jurov: the goal is to get bitcoind working with pogo's limited memory. the problem is that a running bitcoind grows in memory use as a result of normal operations. we know that some processes claim a lot of memory by design, like mempool, so first step is to get a reliable way of cleaning out mempool. ascii wrote that patch, but discovered that in practice zapmempool doesn't reduce memory use.
ascii_field: every tx received eats a measurable qty of ram which is NEVER reclaimed
jurov: phf i know!
ascii_field: in sept. i did an experiment (can't recall if i bothered to explain it here) where i forced the cblock crapola to deallocate, in the correct way (without using an iterator)
ascii_field: this results in fiery crash
ascii_field: because the data structure appears to be an interdependent ball of shit
ascii_field: (there is not a safe way to forget a tx)
jurov: yes just reproduced it - the destructors are not called when map is cleared
ascii_field: aha.
ascii_field: now if you feel like it, reproduce this other thing i did
ascii_field: and yes, jurov was right re: it being a std:: crapolade, rather than boost
phf: jurov: i thought you said that it did get called? http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=27-11-2015#1332468 ☝︎

ascii_field: i tend to associate them in my head, both are of the heathens
jurov: phf yes but that were stack operations. i then filtered them
phf: jurov: ah k
jurov: and how does the map know there are outstanding references?
ascii_field: phf: the goal of 'zapmempool' was to prove that mempool accounts for all of the bloat other than what is accounted for by the 300bytes/block eternal index (another idiocy which will prevent pogoization unless a massive mechanism is rewritten beyond recognition)
ascii_field: it did not work.
ascii_field: jurov: outstanding references ?
jurov: or why does it not destroys the transactions
ascii_field: clear doesn't invoke destructors
ascii_field: just nukes the map
ascii_field: but if you do invoke the destructors (as i later did) - you crash.
jurov: http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/map/map/clear/ "Removes all elements from the map container (which are destroyed), leaving the container with a size of 0"

ascii_field: of size 0
ascii_field: the ELEMENTS of the map are destroyed
ascii_field: that is to say, the key-value pairs
ascii_field: not the objects point to by the values.
phf: there's this CTransaction::RemoveFromMemoryPool, anybody tried calling that in a loop?
ascii_field: me.
phf: ah and that does the crash?
ascii_field: yes. ☟︎
phf: kk
ascii_field: go, try.
ascii_field: this is a 10 minute experiment.
ascii_field: incidentally it isn't a locking bug either
ascii_field: i did try locking the removal
ascii_field: the whole thing is an epic turd and my desire to ever work with it again borders on zero
ascii_field: my original purpose for asking nubbins for The Book, if anyone remembers, was so that i could rewrite.
ascii_field: not so i could sit in a manhole while a cement mixer pours liquid shit in
ascii_field: but if other folks want to take their turn in the manhole - sure, why not...
ascii_field: jurov, phf: i recommend getting that patch of mine which lets you request EXACT bytes of heap used total at ANY TIME
ascii_field: i forget the name, it is not in the vpatch megacanon
jurov: CInPoint refers to CTransaction, thus mapNextTx should be erased before mapTransactions
ascii_field: but is sadly lying around somewhere deep in the ml archive
jurov: the jettison patch had it the other way
ascii_field: jurov: didja try this ?
jurov: did you? i'm still putting it all together
