Memory Leak in CS Fire Monitor?
« on: October 15, 2008, 06:28:44 AM »
Hello

I've been waiting long time for the new Fire Monitor version and was very happy to get it and install it on my PC.

However, after a couple of days I noticed that my PC was somehow slow ... So I used Sysinternals Process Monitor to check, what's slowing down the PC.

It reported the memory consumption (private memory) for Fire Monitor with more than 250 MB.

So unfortunately I had to remove it from the system ...

Are you aware of any memory leaks in Fire Monitor?
Is there a change to get a new version without memory leak?

Cheers

Rick

The page file leak is a small leak that has been in cs fire monitor for a long time, it takes days for it to grow that big. (By closing cs fire mon it goes away then reopen it) And I for the life of me haven't been able to trace it down. I have tried every tool I could think of to find out which API is causing it. I assume it is an API that's causing it cause if the main exe leaked it wouldn't grow in the page file the memory of the exe itself would. So one of the dll's that is used with an API is causing it.

There are over 20,000 lines of code in the program, and the leak is so slow it takes a day or to to see any build up, so trying to fix it is very hard and time consuming. I tried for a week, change a section, run the program, wait a day or so try another section, ugh! If could just find a way to pinpoint the leak.

Any help I can get trying to trace it down would be great and I would fix it in no time.

CS Fire monitor is a old program I made almost over 4 years ago. I think it is time when I get caught up to rebuild it.

I just downloaded CS Fire Monitor and ran the network tools>Repair network.

I cant believe the difference using Google Chrome and visiting my usual haunts a truly Incredible difference in speed.

I am currently building a freeware review blog (www.strungoutonfreeware.com)you can bet I will be featuring this program in the future.

Also thanx for explaining the memory theory In cleanmem enlightening for us noobs.
