Now, I have noticed that I have one problematic process, Mythtranscode, what sometimes starts use a huge amount of memory, what causes system to come extra slow. Problem is, that mythtranscode is not allways running, only when mythbackend calls it.

What I want to do, is just check if process is running, and if it is eating a lot of memory, then kill it.

Is mythtranscode started by mythbackend? If so and as a hack you can test mythbackend like so:

if totalmemory > X MB then exec "/script/to/mythtranscode stop"

Total memory include the current process (mythbackend) and its children (mythtranscode).

To unsubscribe:

Thanks, this really helped. Now I must find out why mythtranscode does this occasionally..
