Where I work, SOAP-Lite is well on its way to
becoming a mission critical piece of our new telecom provisioning
systems. Overall, it is working like a
dream for us, but for one particularly ugly exception -- memory leaks within our
perl clients -- fast, and a lot.
I do not know where within SOAP-Lite the problem is
occurring, only that, every call to the SOAP endpoint will leak some memory.
For now, we are having applications restart
themselves at some interval, it is effective but crude (and
Our client boxes have Perl 5.8.5,
IIRC, I have read stuff about leaks maybe being in
the libraries that SOAP-Lite uses. Is there some type of alternative
parser/serializer/something that can be used to sidestep the leaks?
Thanks for any insight,
