My Question or Issue
After updating my system over the weekend (on 06/09/2018), I found by Wednesday (06/13/2018) Spotify was eating up 31.6 GBs of RAM. As it was installed as a Snap, I switched over to direct debian package install last night (also Wednesday) with the latest package and found by the morning (Thursday) it has already gone above 6.6 GB residential and 12.7 GB virtual. I did not notice this issue before and this is a system that is always on, so this massive memory leak must be fairly new. The main reason for bringing the system down was to do the yearly flush of the custom loop liquid cooling system.
