I have been thinking my Jolla been consuming a lot of CPU power, but today I notices the system_server must be leaking a lot, rebooted the phone around 11 CET as it felt slow. Now around 18 CET the process has taken 41% of the combined RAM/SWAP and a lot of things are pushed out into the swap.

I don't run any more applications than I did before the latest Dalvik update, but my phone has become a lot slower and required to reboot it quite often, as just restarting the Alien Dalvik service will not free memory from swap and the old trick "swapoff -a && swapon -a" don't work as swapon do not work on the Jolla.

SailfishOS Alien Dalvik 0.11.5

For swapon to work you need to tell it the partition which is mmcblk01p24 afaik

so : swapon /dev/mmcblk01p24

For the bug, this has been reported here before :

I guess that is a shortcoming of systemd that you have to give the path to the swap partition.
