I'm running the latest Sailfish version on Intex Aqua Fish and recently contactsd has started to use up to 50% memory before lowmemorykiller is activated. And this happens in a loop again and again. I tried to remove contacts sync from Google account, but it didn't help. Any help?

I'm using SailfishX and contactsd has pretty steady memory usage of 23% according to Lighthouse. This seems pretty high to me.

How many contacts do you have? I have about 100 contacts, and mine is on 0%: image

contacts.google.com reports 167 contacts. And there seems to be duplicates from random contacts, even merging them previous time. I will delete G account from Sailfish and create it from scratch to see if it helps. I will comment that later.

See this one: https://together.jolla.com/question/45322/contactsd-drains-battery/

For me what helped was to remove contacts database and import all.vcf from backup.

I followed this https://together.jolla.com/question/58416/fixing-the-contacts-db/ - I deleted contacts database and related 2 files, removed google account and rebooted phone. Created Google account and contacts are syncronized. Back to normal: Contactsd memory usage now 1%

Thanks @pemek.

Worked for me too. Some of the latest contacts hadn't been synced to google so I lost those. Not a big deal. I did make a backup on the phone so I could probably find them from that.

I restored from from backup and got the missing contacts back. Memory usage stayed low for contactsd.
