For some reason, the memory problem is back again in a big way. Yesterday, I reported a fairly low memory usage, but today it’s different. I’m running DPS with the GUI closed and its memory usage is getting close to 1GB (yes that’s a gigabyte). Once it gets there, it drops back down to the low MB range, then repeats. When I switch to the GUI, memory climbs to about 800MB, then drops down and repeats. I’m not playing any media in either case.
Playing music gives a much lower memory utilization as reported earlier whether the GUI is open or closed. I also found out that turning the Visualizer off increases memory utilization.
After running DPS for a few minutes with media on and off, plus Visualization on and off, it eventually settled down to a much lower memory utilization. It’s certainly a strange problem.
