[SOLVED] PingBlob memory leak?

Post by pete » 2012-01-07T14:49:38-07:00

I wrote simple code, it's do simple work, call PingBlob in infinite loop. I think all resources are freed correctly but i see increasing memory usage. Checked on two machines. Maybe i doing something wrong - problem apears only with animated gifs.

Compilation:

Code: Select all

gcc -Wall -Wextra -O2 -g -I /usr/include/ImageMagick/ -o pingblob pingblob.c -lMagickCore -lpng -ljpeg -ltiff -lbz2 -lz -lm -lpthread
GIF (animated!): http://i51.tinypic.com/2vttwsj.gif
or (animated!): http://www.changethethought.com/wp-cont ... o1_500.gif

Code: Select all

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>

#include <wand/MagickWand.h>

int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
	if (argc != 2) {
		fprintf(stderr, "usage: %s <path>\n", argv[0]);
		return 1;
	}

	char* path = argv[1];

	int fd = open(path, O_RDONLY);
	if (fd < 0) {
		fprintf(stderr, "open(%s) %d, %s\n", path, errno, strerror(errno));
		return 1;
	}

	struct stat st;
	if (fstat(fd, &st)) {
		fprintf(stderr, "stat(%s) %d, %s\n", path, errno, strerror(errno));
		return 1;
	}
	
	size_t pos = 0, size = st.st_size;
	char* data = (char*)malloc(size);

	while (pos < size) {
		int r = read(fd, data + pos, size - pos);
		if (r < 0) {
			if (errno == EINTR) continue;
			fprintf(stderr, "read(%s) %d, %s\n", path, errno, strerror(errno));
			return 1;
		}

		pos += r;
	}

	close(fd);

	MagickCoreGenesis(".", MagickFalse);

	while (1) {
		ImageInfo* ii = CloneImageInfo(NULL);
		ExceptionInfo ei;
		GetExceptionInfo(&ei);

		Image* img = PingBlob(ii, data, size, &ei);
		DestroyImageInfo(ii);
		
		fprintf(stderr, "PingBlob: %d, %s, %s\n", 
				ei.severity, ei.reason, ei.description);

		DestroyExceptionInfo(&ei);

		if (!img) break;

		fprintf(stderr, "PingBlob: %s, %lu x %lu, %lu COLORS, %lu DEPTH\n",
				img->magick, img->magick_columns, img->magick_rows, img->colors, img->depth);

		DestroyImage(img);
		usleep(10000);
	}

	free(data);
	MagickCoreTerminus();
	return 0;
}

Code: Select all

If i replace PingBlob by BlobToImage, memory usage increase too.

I forgot, checked with: ImageMagick-6.7.3-7 and 6.6.0-4


And... SOLVED! I, think...

Code: Select all

                do { 
                        Image* next = img->next;
                        DestroyImage(img);
                        img = next;
                } while (img != NULL);

You can also do..

Code: Select all

   img = DestroyImageList(img);
but as you are using wands, you could just destroy the wand holding the images with DestroyMagickWand()
Or ClearMagickWand() to remove all images and settings without destroying the wand itself (just reset it completely)

Or you can delete the Current images from the Wand until there are no more images in the wand.

Code: Select all

   while( MagickSetIteratorIndex(wand,0) != MagickFalse ) {
       \\ do things with current image
       MagickRemoveImage( wand );
ASIDE: I have just made GetImageFromList() a bit more efficient (in IMv6.7.5-1) by stopping it needing to determine the actual list length to deal with the index value. Minor but did it while I was looking at the code.
