I am devops for our organisation. I am testing Catlight (v1.8.7 Beta) on Windows 7 to see if it could be used by our developers.
It installs fine and functions (with a Jenkins connection) initially. However, after a short period the dashboard becomes unresponsive and Catlight crashes out.
Looking at the logs and Windows Task Manager, the problem occurs when Catlight begins "Checking for updates". After this point there are repeated connection errors of the form:
[2016-09-19 11:56:47.564] [ERROR] main - UncaughtException: Error: socket hang up
[2016-09-19 11:56:47.564] [ERROR] main - UncaughtException: Error: connect ECONNREFUSED 184.108.40.206:443
There appears to be some sort of memory leak on these repeated connection failures as the memory for one of the three catlight processes increases continuously. At about 800MB->1GB the dashboard becomes unresponsive. Less than 1.5GB a "Not enough storage..." error is sometimes reported and at/over 1.5GB Catlight crashes out.
We work in a secure and isolated network so checking for updates is pointless. The "Notify me about early access versions of the app" setting is unchecked.
