Description (partial)

A memory leak in the fdmi process occurs whenever a port to which the FDMI host is connected is flapped. If there are many port flaps the fdmi process may run out of memory and crash.

memory is lost each time a port goes down.

1. identify flapping ports and remedy. if memory has already been leaked a supervisor switchover will cause the process to be restarted and the memory to be recovered.
2. Disabling fdmi on the host would also stop this memory leak even if the port to which the host is connected is flapped.
