qB 4.3.8 Memory Usage

Post by DeathStalker »

I've noticed that with ~1700 torrents, the memory usage for qB 4.3.8 is ~3k - is this normal or is there a memory leak that hasn't been fixed?

Thanks.

I think this is a pretty EASY question to answer, and NO ONE can be bothered? WTF?

Too "elitist" or just don't care?

Ok, so qB basically uses EVERY bit of RAM you can allocate to it (in Advanced Options) - is there a limit? I have 64gb RAM - I allocated 15gb to qB and it's used every bit of it.

Some responses would be nice.

I found 4.3.8 used all my memory overnight. I can only contrast that with 4.3.6, which is very stable, been up a few days (week or so). Seeding about 450 torrents (of about 1,000 loaded), a small number downloaded.
Using just over 1GB now (1079MB) reported as the active private working set by Windows Task Manager.
No memory settings updated, but using Windows file cacahing.

On Sept.2 in the Re: Looking forward to feedback on 4.3.8!!!! thread you wrote. "4.36 CRASHED *constantly* on me." Hmmm, is right.
