Last night radvd got killed by the oom killer
Feb 4 02:32:11 firewall17 vmunix: [1762825.239631] [ pid ] uid tgid total_vm rss pgtables_bytes swapents oom_score_adj name

When I look on another host I see that it's rather larger than I would
3247 radvd 20 0 177228 41016 556 S 0.0 24.0 16:07.26 radvd
After a bounce it looks better:
1030 radvd 20 0 2444 1616 1476 S 0.0 0.9 0:00.01 radvd
I cannot find anything about radvd having memory leaks. Does anyone know
if this large memory footprint is expected (I'm running it on a VM with
not much memory and I can increase that if necessary)?
I can obviously restart it to avoid this issue. I wonder if it could be
related to VPN interfaces that are constantly being created and removed.
