      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Use agent
      2. Let Poudriere build packages

      Remark:

      Poudriere on FreeBSD tends to use high CPU, memory and I/O ressources, because it builds multiple packages using multiprocessing. I have enough swap left to make sure processes don't die. Zabbix Agent probably dies, because of the ridiculous amount of memory it wants to allocate (see log).

      Result:

      Log:

      Expected:
      Zabbix not allocating a huge amount of memory.
