Memory usage

Dominic Harris
Dominic Harris

How much RAM are you using? We 7.1/16GB here.
six Firefox content processes (over 200 tabs across six windows, still haven't upgraded to Quantum)
eight pdfs open
eight dolphin instances (with tabs)
plasmashell getting massive for some reason
If I restart these programs, the RAM usage usually goes back down by hundreds of MB. Which makes me think they straight-up don't delete shit from memory once it's allocated, even if you close it. Does this qualify as memory leak, or just the fucked up era we live in?

A little over 1 GB, but most of that is a RAM disk. Lynx is using about 18 MB.

over 200 tabs
OK, I need to know this you pig disgusting tab glutton. Why the fuck do you have this many tabs open?
Do you just keep tabs open instead of bookmarking them?
Are they google searches you forgot to clean?
How does a man actually make use of 200 fucking tabs?

Lets say you casually browse your favorite boards and you open up 5 threads, then some time passes and those threads become popular and get hundreds of replies and become pretty good. But you don't really take the time to read them so you look at the boards again and open up 5 new threads that seem promising. This cycles repeats itself and also applies to good pictures/links you come across.

Then you get remorse and regret if you think about closing those tabs, especially if they 404'd. Soon enough your memory usage goes to 96% and your browser crashes and those good threads you never took time to read are lost forever. It's a special kind of hell for autismos.

Why can't GNU have as nice of a resource monitoring tool as Windows?

I set up a userscript. I press ,q and the current tab has its URL and title added to a text file, after which it's closed.
Some day I'll start restoring things from the file. Until that day, my autism is soothed.

You're fucking retarded. Focus on one thread at a time. You actually choose to retard yourself and this makes you a massive cuck.

one window for work, one for school, six windows for various research and study areas, and one for 8ch/shitposting. Most of it is longass articles I slowly read. I'd probably get through them a lot faster if I didn't shitpost as compulsively.

I never understood this. Do browsers not use virtual memory? It seems like the obvious choice would be to unload everything to the disk past a certain point. It's not like there's an excuse when 99 out of 100 tabs aren't even on the screen. Or is that what's happening? Do task manager stats include virtual memory, or are browsers just retarded?

Gabriel Reyes

they already do, that's what the disk and memory caches are for. only they do the opposite of what your thinking. they not only keep all the tabs in memory, they keep another copy of all their content also in memory and disk cache. this should save on network bandwidth only it never does because the browser will always download all the content of the page every single time no matter what is in your cache. and then there's guide's and scripts that take that disk cache and stick that in ram too. so you have the page in memory in the tab, all it's content in the browsers ram cache, and all it's content in the browsers disk cache, which is also in ram.

Browsers don't use virtual memory swap space is different, I am talking about over-allocating except for the javascript garbage collector. If you turn off javascript and the UI isn't a peice of shit like mozilla's then its stable. Use palemoon or icecat you faggots.

What process managers are out there that look good for linux/unix/gnu? Top, ptop, lxtask, and qps look like shit. Any others?

the ephemeral nature of imagboards means you often miss out on cool breads and/or posts becasue the next time you load the thread it 404s or posts in the thread have been deleted.

bloat
Naw, Windows Prefetches frequently used data in RAM for performance reasons. RAM usage at idle will always be around 20 percent of total available memory. Without prefetch memory usage would probably be much lower

The reason GNU/Linux doesn't have such aggressive prefetch is probably because the prefetcher is patented by Microsoft

Mason Johnson
Mason Johnson

it's probably because prefetch is bloat.
linux cache's disk read's in ram, it's postfetch.

why would I want the OS tracking everything I do trying and failing to anticipate my future IO needs and causing constant IO in the process. surely micropoo doesn't send any of these prefetch data in telemetry.

Brody Ramirez
Brody Ramirez

The prefetcher is run at boot-time and retrieves data from its trace folder that passively creates data traces as applications are ran. And only a minute of program use is actually traced because the whole point is to start applications faster so the application itself can take over and load assets into memory

That requires actually competent and worthwhile developers, and that type do shit for money to pay bills and live instead of freetarding.

You can easily disable superfetch prefreching in Windows services. And linux swappiness is even worse performance because it's dependant on the disk not ram.

Hey guys your website is loading 900MB of javascript data into RAM to serve a 1kb text file

MEMORY IS MEANT TO BE USED!! ITS 2017!!

I was expecting my RAM usage to be much higher, but I think that this is a side effect of me switching from chrome canary to pale moon. My RAM use is basically what it is when I have chrome turned off... Only 5.2/16 here.
