[dm-devel] Re: Memory leak in multipathd.

Ok, to my knowledge Konrad plugged this one in December upstream :

commit d0d98bc348b69d873841b10dd9a1c73af305f0fd
Author: Konrad Rzeszutek <konrad virtualiron com>
Date:   Wed Dec 17 23:19:19 2008 +0100

Thank you for the report Hari. But know that there are very few tarball releases, so upstream is really the git HEAD. This is what you should check and see if the bugs you report are already fixed.

Best regards,

Objet: RE: Memory leak in multipathd.

I am reporting memory leak for the code multipath-tools-0.4.7.rhel5.13 downloaded from rhel and multipath-tools-0.4.8. 
vector_free() will not free the mpp's allocated by dm_get_maps(). Here we need to call free_multipath() 
Below is by fix: 

dm_get_name(char *uuid, char *type, char *name) 
vector vec; 
struct multipath *mpp; 
int ret; 
int i; 
vec = vector_alloc(); 
if (!vec) 
return 0; 
if (dm_get_maps(vec, type)) { 
return 0; 
vector_foreach_slot(vec, mpp, i) { 
if (!strcmp(uuid, mpp->wwid)) { 
strcpy(name, mpp->alias); 
ret = 1; 
goto found; 
ret = 0; 
vector_foreach_slot(vec, mpp, i) { 
free_multipath(mpp, KEEP_PATHS); 
return ret;

Hi Hari, 

are you reporting on the upstream multipath-tools code ? I already see multipath vector freeing there ...
