I'm in a team developing a video based application that extensively uses Intel's IPP library (IPP v6.1).
Lately we started testing the application on the pre-released OS X 10.9.4 version, and encountered several crashes at different locations, when the application runs for a long time (several hours). In most of the cases the crashes were in Apple's threads and code.
I started analysing the issues using the Xcode leak instrument and found out that the memory consumption of the application is significantly higher when running on OS X 10.9.4 than on OS X 10.9.2. For example, after an hour of running on 10.9.4 the application memory consumption reaches about 800 MB, and after 90 minutes it reaches 1.8 GB, whereas the same application on 10.9.2 is constantly using about 120 MB.
Most of the additional memory consumption, on 10.9.4, seems to be due to Intel's IPP allocations. However, the Xcode leak instrument did not identify any leaks in the code.
Does anyone know of a similar issue with OS X 10.9.4?
