    Memory Leaks

    After loading up .NET IDE and the Integrated Help and using it for a around
    5 minutes I am up to 310mb of used memory. When I shut both down I get about
    10mb back. Load both up again and the count goes up to over 400mb.

    Do others have these problems?

    Thanks

    Pat

    Yes. I reckon the min spec is 1GB RAM and I normally reboot every 10
    mins or so. Its great - just like being back in Win 3.1. The culprit, as
    you mention, is the MSDN help. Am I alone in finding the so called
    'dynamic help' a complete waste of time? If you have that open you can
    kiss your resources goodbye.

    Still, the poor thing is still a baby-beta so I am not really
    complaining.

    Jonny,

    It is a single mouse click to turn it off.

    Might work out in Beta2 or RTM, but for now, I shut dynamic help down.

    Never touch the stuff.

    Hey, I sure have been having some fun today. Been putting some of the
    stuff in Sytem.Type and System.Reflection to work - hopefully for a good
    cause as you know.

    What a joy it is, the power in the base classes is stunning and easily
    accessible. Doing the equivalent sort of work in COM was a nightmare.

    Of course I did a whole lot of reading of things I ended up not using
    today and so my knowlege of the base classes is growing. Can't complain
    about that either.

    I'm finding, on Win2000 Professional SP1 with IE5.5 SP1 and 128MB RAM, that
    the memory is used up to a rather high limit rather quickly, but performance
    does not degrade for quite a long time afterwards, as you'd expect from
    leaks. It's the limit that interests me -- it's as if there is some sort of
    garbage collection going on.

    And yes the final straw, no the bale, that causes me to close the IDE and
    open again is normally the help. I tried a session or two without it, but I
    found I preferred to have it available and fight the memory problems :-}
