Found a email thread related to memory leak using omapi. Not sure if this
has been fixed or a work around is available.

Could you please shed some light on this?

Appreciate your help in advance.


An issue record, [ISC-Bugs #22784] has been created to address this


Here is valgrind output while using v3.1-ESV
