Subject [jira] [Updated] (CURATOR-14) Memory leak in Curator watches
Date Thu, 02 May 2013 20:42:16 GMT


Ioannis Canellos updated CURATOR-14:

    Attachment: CURATOR-14.patch

A first draft.

Recipes have been tuned to use the WatcherCache where it makes sense.

Tested against the attached case and it solves the memory leak.
