Newsbin 6.90 RC3 Display Age Memory Usage

Postby Ortiz » Fri Oct 29, 2021 9:44 am

I tried out 6.90 RC3 the other day. I found memory usage was much higher than 6.82.

I generally keep 3 watch groups open. One of them is quite old and I switch the Display Age dropdown control to the current month. In this case it is "21: October".

In 6.82, Process Explorer showed the memory usage as:
Virtual Size: 5,912,080 K
Private Bytes: 1,421,568 K
Working Set: 43,512 K

In 6.90 RC3:
Virtual Size: 20,281,312 K
Private Bytes: 15,741,660 K
Working Set: 7,893,244 K

In 6.82, if I switch Display Age to Show All Files, then I get similar memory usage. So, maybe 6.90 RC3 is keeping filtered articles in memory after Display Age is applied, while 6.82 does not.

I'm checking it out. Thanks.

One change I just made is that watch lists now obey "Display Age" so, loading one won't load up all N days by default.
