Packagekitd – High Memory Usage

Packagekitd daemon was using high memory usage on the Debian Linux server. Almost 30% of the total RAM!!

Tried to identify the root cause but didn’t help. so I had to kill the process to avoid further issues on the server.

I used below commands to kill the daemon process. After this got 30% RAM free…
ps auxf | grep package
[Get the process # for packagekitd]
sudo kill [process #]
BTW, I wish all my blog readers a very happy, prosperous and peaceful new year 2016!!!
