Re: NetBSD 9.0 Huge Memory Usage

The images and the first posts are all without firefox for example the one in tty without X running.
but as the questions rolled out asking for the ps and swap I was posting to the forum. at that point firefox was running for obvious reasons :D

I have this problem from the first boot after installation.
The memory usage is normal but it grows exponentially.
The memory that gets consumed won't be returned to the system.
after 14hrs of computer just setting idle the memory would grow about 5GB.
at first I thought it is about firefox but removing it from the equation did nothing.
the whole system is the culprit.  
You said you removed firefox from the equation, but your ps aux output at shows /usr/pkg/lib/firefox/firefox using many gigabytes of memory.
