# memory leak when mapping ideals?

Reported by: Owned by: Simon King hannes major 3-1-1 memory leak 3-1-0 map, ideal

### Description

reported on Nov 6, 2009 by Simon King:

I observed the following:

ring r = 2, (x(1..100)),dp; ideal i; for (int n=100;n>=1;n--) { i[n]=x(n)2; } map m = r,i; ideal j = maxideal(3); j = j[1..500]; option(mem); ideal k; for (n=1;n<=1000;n++){k=m(j);print(memory(0));}

[1753k]1910152 2002280 [2756k]2094352 2186424 2278496 2370568 [1291k]1049192 1111080 1169024 1226912 1284800 1342688 1400576 1458464 [2294k]1516352 1574240 1632128 1690072 1747960 1805848 1863736 1921624 1979512 2037400 2095288 2153176 2211120 2269008 2326896 2384784 2442672 [3297k]2500560 2558448 2616336 2674224 2732112 2790056 2847944 2905832 ...

Why is the memory consumption constantly growing, although the memory allocation of the ideal k should be constant?

Actually it *is* constant if one does not map j, i.e., if one has { k=j; } or { kill k; ideal k=j; } in the loop.

Can other people verify it (I am using the Singular version that is shipped with Sage)?

Note that the memory consumption remains constant if I map polynomials rather than ideals:

ring r = 2, (x(1..100)),dp; ideal i; for (int n=100;n>=1;n--) { i[n]=x(n)2; } map m = r,i; ideal j = maxideal(3); j = j[1..500]; option(mem); poly p; int t; ideal k; for (n=1;n<=1000;n++){ for (t=1;t<=500;t++) { p=j[t]; k[t]=m(p); };

print(memory(0));} [1753k][489k]509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 509816 ...

So, it seems to me that there is a memory leak that occurs if one maps ideals. Killing and reallocating ideals is fine, and mapping of polynomials is fine.

Best regards, Simon

current status: most, but not all memery leaks found and fixed

### comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by seelisch

Component: dontKnow → memory leak

### comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by kroeker@…

issue still holds in singular-spielwiese

### comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by kroeker@…

Since some of our examples for resolutions of singularities are memory-intensive, it would be nice if someone could look at the memory leaks again.

it seems that the occurrence of the memory leak is connected to the relations of monomial degrees in ideal J:

input:

```  option(mem);
ring r = 0, (x),dp;

ideal i = 1;
map m = r,i;
def n,k;

ideal J = x^2, x^4; // ok
for ( n=1; n<=3; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^2, x^5; //  memleak?
for ( n=1; n<=3; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^20, x^40, x^80; // ok
for ( n=1; n<=3; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^21, x^42, x^84; // ok
for ( n=1; n<=3; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^20, x^40, x^ 81; // memleak?
for ( n=1; n<=3; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^19, x^40, x^ 80; //  memleak?
for ( n=1; n<=3; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^20, x^39, x^80; //  memleak?
for ( n=1; n<=3 ; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

J = x^21, x^26 ; //  memleak?
for ( n=1; n<=3 ; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }

def h;
for (h=5;h<=15;h++) // ok for h = 5 and h = 10?
{
print("h = "+string(h) + ":" );
J = x^5, x^h ; //  memleak?
for ( n=1; n<=5 ; n++)   {      k=m(J);      print( memory(0) );    }
print("");
}
```

output:

any ideas what is going on?
