Problem:
I'm running kismet server and gkismet on Redhat Enterprise. Seems to be working fine, however the physical memory is completely exhausted and swap is exhausted then then gkismet/kismet automatically shuts down or the the system locks up.

Research found:
From reading the other messages/responses about memory usage it seems this amount of memory usage may be a feature more than a bug, however it looks and behaves like a memory leak.

Question:
Is there anyway to configure kismet or gkismet to utilize a said amount of memory? If not what is the formula for determining ahead of time how much memory is needed?

Thanks,
Chris
