[Freeswitch-dev] Fwd: Call Center - Memory Leak

NewRelic, which you seem to be using, also provides per-application memory
usage.  Would be nice to see that after a day or partial day run.

Freeswitch uses a good amount of memory per channel.  Are you sure the
channels are being released?  fs_cli -x status >> log_file ... and maybe
run it on a crontab just to make sure the channels are being released.

Besides that, I personally don't have any ideas without recreating your
test environment.  I guess you could see if FIFO or Scheduled Hangup is the
issue by calling HANGUP instead of FIFO for extension 7011.  I've never
personally used Schedule Hangup and as that's the method being used here to
release the channels, it might be a concern.
