Code Sample

import os
import psutil
import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

process = psutil.Process(os.getpid())
i = 0

def sink():
    global i
    i += 1
    if i % 100 == 0:
        mem = process.memory_info().rss / 1e6
        print("mem %fMB" % mem)

while True:
     s = pd.Series(np.random.randn(5e6))
     m = s.rolling(1e3).quantile(0.1) #  leaks (unexpected)
     # m = s.rolling(1e3).quantile(0) # no leak (expected)

Problem description

Rolling quantile leaks memory with quantiles within (0,1)

Related Code

return _window.roll_quantile(arg, window, minp, indexi,

def roll_quantile(ndarray[float64_t, cast=True] input, int64_t win,

The leak should be in roll_quantile cython code. I could not trace it with objgraph.

I believe a free for skiplist is missing.
