This should be resolved in Fixpack 2.. The relevant APAR number is IY56958. I just had a customer with a very similar problem who applied Fixpack 2 and his feedback was that it worked.

[nv-l] [nvcold] memory leak ?

About once a week I get an alert from ITM advising me "'The percentage of available swap space is low 49%"
nvcold is always the problem. nmon indicates it has aquired over 1.2G of memory.
I have a a few rulesets in ESE.automation that judiciously test smartset membership.
I have re-written many of my custom tools to not use nvUtil.
But still, I have to recycle nvcold about once a week.
The memory use, after a recycle, drops to arond 1M, but over time it will continue to grow.
If I do not act quickly to recycle nvcold it will core dump, ovwdb will hang and require comleteley recycing NetView daemons to recover.
Is there a fix for nvcold?
