Hi,

we have experienced the following issue:
https://github.com/wkhtmltopdf/wkhtmltopdf/issues/2950

In short wkhtml explodes to 1GB+ memory consumption in less then our metrics resolution (2s).

That should worry anyone who runs wkhtmltopdf on the same instance as odoo runs and would kill every averagely scoped server instance under otherwise normal load.

Be warned!
Share your experience with this please!

If I remeber correctly (I'm under way on cellphone):
we are on wkhtmltopdf 0.12.3
the maintainer suggests to try 0.13 alpha

I'll keep you updates once further findings drop in.

Best, Regards
David
